Fab and Fresh Fall Friday

While we have yet to have fall like weather here, it is Friday and that is fabulous!!!  Even though it's still been pretty darn hot here, I'm still in fall mode in so many, coffee, clothes and cards!
With my pumpkin spice coffee in hand, I have a fall card to share with you this morning.  My inspiration for today's card came from the fresh and clean sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the yummy fall colors from Fab Friday.
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Sweater Weather DSP, Champagne Glimmer Paper
Ink ~ Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango, VersaMark
Stamp Set ~ Four You, Gorgeous Grunge
Other Supplies ~ Autumn Accents, Neutrals Buttons, Linen Thread, Gold Embossing Powder
I sponged the leaves and crumpled them up to give them a bit of texture...I have such a hard time with a "flat" card sometimes!  Anyone else have that problem?
This card will also be submitted in this weeks  Friday Mashup Challenge...Thinking of You.  October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness and FMU is giving this month great honor.  This card was made for my dear friend who just lost her unborn grandson.  My heart aches for her daughter and all of their family.  I know all too well what it feels like to lose a baby during pregnancy...I hope my card brings a little comfort and peace to my friend and her family.  I will also be creating another card to send to Heidi to send to her local HANDS charity.  Hugs to any of you who may have suffered the loss of a pregnancy or baby...
Happy Friday and Happy Stamping!


  1. Love it as always! I don't like flat cards either. It either needs to be inked, scrunched or embossed to make me happy with my creations!!

  2. Amazing use of both challenges!! I am so sorry that you need this card but it will surely be appreciated. Glad to see you this week at FMS!

  3. A fall beauty! I am totally intimidated by anything with 4 or more colors, you rocked this!

  4. What a pretty card, Bree! I wish you had a different reason to send it though. I'm sure it will be appreciated.

  5. This is so pretty and such a thoughtful card. I love how you added the glimmer paper border. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
