Grateful for

Fall!  Indeed I am!  Beautiful weather here.  Mid 80's and holding.  It rained for a bit yesterday but not enough to quench my plants thirst.  They need some TLC.  I have been neglecting them during the week and then trying to make up for it on the weekends.  Not so good. 

I am squeaking this card in late at night because I finally got some creative time.  Not so good  for photos.  :-(  I apologize for the poor lighting.  I keep saying I need to buy one of those light tents.  With Fall here, the day is growing shorter so just might break down and do that real soon.

My card uses Card Patterns sketch #81.  Tomorrow will be a new sketch so cutting this one close.  Whew!  I hate missing out on their sketches.  I was determined to get it done.  :-)
Also entering this is in Creative Card Crew for Autumn and Incy Wincy Designs challenge using Autumn Colors.   I used browns and oranges predominantly with a touch of black and cream. 

Okay have to get my parade outfit ready for tomorrow.  Good night!

Fall-ish and a bit halloween-ish. The card is gorgeous. I love the way you added the sentiment on fabric.
Here it's definitely fall.... Yesterday was so cold.... Temperature in the mid 40's.....
Enjoy your parade!!

Amy this card is divine!! The oranges, black and kraft paper combo is SO pretty. That black/white check paper is stunning and I'm in awe of the twill ribbon with the "Fall" lettering. It simply doesn't get any better than this!!! :) ♥♥ Kay
