It's Fall!

Our temperatures have really taken a dip lately. I've had to close the windows and many of my co-workers are talking about turning on their heat. We haven't done that yet. My hubby will wait until the very last second for that one but we have had a fire in the fireplace on several occasions. I like the toastiness of a fire. So I went with a fall theme tonight on my card.

I was practicing with my Copic markers. The jacket is paper pieced but I colored the rest of the cute little girl from MFT. I used walnut distress ink on all the edges and on the top of the corn stalks. I'm not sure where the patterned paper is from. The corn stalks were die cut but I hand cut the girl and the banner. The added twine was for a little embellishment. I am entering these challenges:

Simon Says challenge: use a rubber or clear stamp

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card tonight. Hope your week is going well and you are ready to relax on the weekend.
