Fall Silhouette

Still in a fall mood--I can actually feel it in the air--I decided to make an end-of-summer card to send to my father. Dad and I exchange old fashioned letters every single week, and it gives him a bit of a thrill to receive a handmade card in addition to the letter. Dad is an artist so he is more appreciative than most of my efforts to use color and design.

Here's what I used to make this card:
  • Designer Series Paper--Autumn Vine
  • Stamp Set--Garden Silhouettes
  • Buttons--Really Rust
  • Ribbon Originals--Jersey (I layered the ribbons)
  • Punch--Pinking Hearts Border
  • Card Stock--Really Rust and More Mustard
  • Ink--Wild Wasabi

I think that is the sweetest thing that you exchange letters with your father. I love it! I also love this card and all of the layers (and of course the DSP)!
