Welcome Autumn!

We've had some much-welcome cooler weather in Arkansas (and a little bit of rain!) for several days, and I am LOVING it!!!  I wish the cooler weather would be here to stay, but I'm afraid we may get some warmer temperatures again before fall is officially here.

I'm a moderator in the Yahoo group Scrappin' 'n' Chattin', and we are currently in Week #37 of a 52-Week Card Challenge.  The aim of the challenge is to complete one card a week for the entire year.  WHEW!!!  This is the third year I've participated, and I've never made it this far.  The group member who runs the challenge gives us a prompt each Saturday, and we have until the following Friday at midnight in our time zone to complete our card following the challenge.  Each participant is given five passes for the year that you can use at any time.  If you use a pass, you have to complete TWO cards the next week--the one you used the pass for and the current one.  This week's challenge is to use fall colors on your card, so I started digging through my stuff and found some of the Bo Bunny Forever Fall collection (now retired) to create my card.

The large orange ribbon was some I found in my stash.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Stickles in Scattered Straw to accent some of the swirls on the front, and I outlined the word "Autumn" with Star Dust Stickles.  The leaves on the inside are from Jolee's by You.
