Fall is Here

I am not a big fan of cooler weather for health reasons, but I do love the colors of fall and I think this card shows off some of the colors fairly well. Meet Laurel (Stand Out in the Crowd stamp set) from Tiddly Inks. She is sporting a very fallish outfit that was just screaming out to me to be put on a fall card. And I felt she was the perfect stamp for me to try out new-to-me technique. I have seen a number of different blogs where copics were used to give images a sepia I finally got brave and decided to try it...and I think Laurel turned out looking pretty good. At least for a first try anyway. I am still "practicing" because I love this technique...I love the look! To me, it just seemed a fitting technique on a fitting image to make up a nice fall card. The rest of the card came together pretty easily. The cardstock is my fav, PTI in Orange Zest, Lemon Tart and Dark Chocolate. The patterned paper is from a Debbie Mumm stack I purchased several years ago at Jo-Ann Fabrics. I used a Fiskers punch for the leaves, PTI ribbon, Stampin' Up's slit punch to put the ribbon through and buttons from my stash. 
I don't know for sure, but I think Laurel looks happy with the outcome...hehe. Anyway, I believe that is enough said for now... Thanks for stopping by and until next time, take care.
