My favorite time of year is Fall. 
I grew up in AZ and we had mostly evergreen trees. The few deciduous trees went to yellowish/brown to different shades of brown before falling. I remember the year first lived in the midwest. When the leaves changed colors, I was so excited to see the extravagant colors. I had to catch my breath and was constantly saying "Thank You God for making such a beautiful world" I still feel that way each year in the fall. 

My card used several Mark's Finest Papers sets. Here is a list of the sets: 

I took the sentiments and and put them all on my large acrylic block. I used Black Stazon ink. Then I did ink spray smash technique to add fall colors. When that dried, I took a stipple brush to add more colors. I added raffia and a little acorn charm.
