Stampendous poinsetta

Stamp by stupendous, colored With pencils 

Autumn mouse

 I love fall colors which is what I chose for this card. This house mouse image is all snuggled up in a sunflower. Colored with pencils and used a light orange ink around the rounded edged corners. I layered on a burnt mustard colored cardstock and added a gemstone golden leaf. Along with a string bow. 

With sympathy fall foliage

I used  the front of a greeting card that I had gotten a while back. I thought it was so beautiful and I could not let it slip by, so into my stash it went! It shows such beautiful fall colors which we have seen quite a bit of in certain areas here in Iowa this year. I layered it on a white card stock added my sentiment and an orange and white striped string to keep it simple. It makes a beautiful sympathy card.
