Daydream Designs Fall Beauty

Today I am beginning a grand excursion into FALL! I LOVE fall and always look forward to the cooler weather, beautiful leaves and new schedules! For the month of September I have some new digital images I will be working with. Some are pre-colored, some are not and I will color them myself using a variety of techniques.
But for today I want to show you the card I just made yesterday!

This "thinking of you" type card is for a neighbor suffering with cancer. I thought the image was so perfect for the fall days soon to come. The bushel basket with gourds image is from the set called "Bushel and a Peck". The images are designed by Diane Noble and the colorization is done by Kris Breach...two VERY talented ladies! Aren't the colors lovely and rich?! The sentiment is from the set "God's Comfort". Both digital image sets are from Daydream Designs. They are so easy to work with....I'm loving them!

I added just a few embellishments:
A few "fussy-cut" leaves stamped with a Studio G stamp,
Ice Stickles- "Lemon Ice"
Sheer ribbon, glass bead drops and leaf brad - from my stash

I am going to enter this card in just a few challenges: - #61 "Color Challenge"

What a beauty, Sandie!! Your card has just the amount of white space for me, it makes the color pop and I love your leaf embellishments and bit of sparkle. What a day brightened for your neighbors.

Sandie, this is beautiful! What a lovely presentation of the images with the 3-D leaves. All the sparkle makes it look like Jack Frost was there! Love it!
