Happy Fall Y'all

Here istoday's Design Team Post over at PaperCraftingWorld.
Fall is upon us so I had to do a fall card!

I used a few different files to create my project.
I used the "Happy Fall Y'all Harvest sign DS" and the "Pumpkin Smiley DS"

I also used the "Autumn title V12 CF" but I only took the leaves and cut them on the cricut in several different colors (now I have them to use with lots of other fall projects)

I used distress inks for the Green on the card base and the grass.
the pumpins and sign are Copic colored and accented with gel pens.

Love these files, so fun to make lots of projects!

Here is a 2nd version - sized 8x10" and watercolored this time.
Laminated and hung with a ribbon.

Looking for Smore summer fun?  How about Smores?

I ran the frames the pink paper thru the die cut machine and used distress inks for the "picture backgrounds"
