My Favorite Things: Choose Joy with Autumn Colors

I love, love, LOVE autumn colors.  (Have I said that dozens of times before?)  I had decided to play along with the sketch at My Favorite Things and while digging through my stash of uninked stamps, I saw this charming Sunflower Girl.  I was actually making this card yesterday morning and it was unusually gray out and a little rainy.  With all of that, my need for rich fall colors went into high gear!

Today, Choose Joy


I had also just purchased the MFT Western Borders set so I ignored the pretty scalloped border and added some barnwood!

Also adding to Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.

If you are in the U.S., I hope you are having a happy and relaxed Labor Day!

An early morning visit to your blog has me starting the day in awe once again! Beautiful card that most definitely captures rich fall colours in a most delightful way. The little girl - adorable! Your papers - especially the barnwood - eye-catching. Kim - another fabulous, amazing piece of art!

We have one love in common... other than CAS designs... I also ♥ Fall colors!
Just can't figure out why I so seldom use it to make cards!
Inspiring card ... as always Kim!

Ha, ha, I soooo much loved the 'let's ignore the scalloped border' part!
Well as for your card, she's sweet indeed! And the colors you used are rich fall colors and autumn is such a great time of the year, just like winter!
Fall and winter are my favourites!!!
So I can relate to you. :-)
And the tiny golden leave is such a great detail, love it!!!
And the new barnwood stamp is great too! Great choice.
Bye,

Marjolein
