Great Impressions–Fall Garden

Hello!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!  

I have a new autumn-themed card to share with you today using Fall Garden (H230) from Great Impressions Stamps.  This is such a pretty image.  I had fun coloring it this weekend.

This card also fits the theme of the new challenge on the Great Impressions Stamps blog – FALL COLORS.    The challenge ends on September 30th so you have plenty of times to link up your fall color creation.   Stop by the Great Impressions Stamps blog for the challenge details.


My card design was inspired by this card by the talented Michele Kovack.

I hope to have more to share soon.
