Fall is in the Air...

that's right, folks... it's all the way into the 60's today! That's all right. Still feels like fall to me. Today I'm bringing you one of my favorites that I've made in a little while. I love it when you picture a concept in your head and then it actually comes out looking just like you imagined and... bonus... you feel like it's good. This little perfect storm does not always happen for me!

There are two papers from Basic Grey's Indian Summer line which I love because it's has such a warm autumn feel and also a bit of funkiness with the addition of the purple hues. Love it. I just trimmed some squares and then lined them all up on a piece of cardstock backing. Don't know why, but I'm totally into the patchwork look as of late. I intentionally picked the vibrant, yet a bit darker, papers so that the white rub-ons would really pop visually. Added a few rhinestones just for some shine. I decided to switch it up and instead of stitching all the way around the focal panel I added the twine at the bottom and just stitched right over it at the sides. Kind of fun! Later, friends! {Fall is in the Air} card

This is beautiful perfection, Jess! I love the patchwork, the wonky stitching and the stark white against the bold fall colors! Gorgeous!!!
