First Day of Autumn Blog Hop

Today Debra and Paula Kay decided to have a Autumn Hop.  I hemmed and hawed since I've already posted a few cards but then, my hopping spirit won out!  I used just 2 TAC sets for this card, Autumn Leaves and Delicious Fall.    I used leftover pieces of colored card stocks and a small piece of white glossy card stock for the main image.  Only 1 ink was used, Burnt Umber PH.





I like how this turned out.  I did this card in minutes....  I love it when it falls together like this!  I also used 2 small brown buttons, red scrappers floss, mini glue dots, and foam mounting tape.

I had a bit of a time photoing this as the glossy was giving me fits wanting to pick up the light and have a glare.  But I got it done!  What do you think?

Stop by these blogs for more Autumn inpiration!

Great card! I have a lot of trouble with glare too. Seems the only place I can get a good photo is on top of my grand piano. And then my hands shake terribly urgh! How did you get the white leaves on the white glossy paper? It looks really cool.
