I was going for a collage look with this card. I tried using common elements, like the staples, notebook paper, and paper clip and newspaper cliping. I also hand wrote the list on the notebook paper. I listed things I like about Autumn: Football games, marching band, hayrides, cool nights, hot chocolate... I added lace, vellum, and raffia and leaves made using AUTUMN GLORY. I stamped the ticket and covered bridge image using black stazon ink. I watercolored the image and adhered it to the card with photo corners and sewing. I made this card for my good friend Carol. Our kids are in a lot of the same activities. My favorite time of year is when Carol and I can sit by eachother at football games and at marching band competitions. Our schedules are usually so busy, it is nice to just get to sit and visit and watch our kids perform.
