Emma In Leaves in Honor of September 1st

Greetings bloggers happy September 1st! You know that summer is coming to and end and the leaves will soon be changing. In honor of the beautiful season of fall, I have created this lovely card with Emma In Leaves from the Fred She Said Store.
Emma is a pre-colored image that I used on this creation along with a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch. I used the spellbinders leaves die cuts for the background and another punch I have for the leaves which were all individually distressed inked with Rangers inks to make them look like maple leaves.
The picture above is actually a picture of the card and coordinating envelope!
This was something that I totally enjoyed putting together as fall is my favorite time of year. Emma symbolizes the joy I used to feel in the fall when playing in the leaves as a child. It is the most beautiful time of the year if you are lucky enough to live in a place where the leave change color. In my home in Connecticut I got to experience it every year. Here in Georgia we are not lucky enough to see the beauty unless we go North! Thanks for stopping by today.

Love it - we are just coming into spring, and although we do get some colour in fall, it's not as much as you would have grown-up with.

Beate said...

Wow! What an amazing fall card. Love all your layers and your gorgeous coloring.

Carol, your card is beautiful!

I live in Alabama (right on the AL/GA border), so we are neighbors. We do get the color changes, but it's much later than everybody else. That is, if the leaves don't fall off early due to dryness & extreme heat.

Fall is my favorite too!
Have a great day!

I was just looking at the beautiful card and envelope that I received from you - I have it on my bulletin board for inspiration - and I am awed every time at the work you put into each creation!

This card is so lovely with all the colors - I can imagine what it looks like in real life! The detail is fantastic as always!

Wishing you a happy weekend! :<)
