Leaves are falling....

Hello all!
I can't ignore it anymore - there is a definite chill in the air which signifies that summer is coming to an end (deep sigh).  I know a lot of you love autumn or fall, depending on which side of the Atlantic you are but I just prefer the warmth of spring and summer.  I will admit to enjoying fall a lot more on the East Coast of the USA as it is a great deal crisper and fresher than the somewhat misty and wet months of an English autumn but I'm the owner of a body that craves the warmth of the sun!  Still, the seasons carry on doing their thing by changing and there's always log fires and hot chocolate to look forward to :)
      All that rambling is really just a long-winded introduction to my autumnal card - I used the same set of Tim Holtz stamps as on the Snowmen card here . Some simple Copics colouring, twine and a button and a few strips of craft tape and the card is done!

 
 
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
 
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by :)

An elegant Autumn card! A change of pace from "cute". Love the "natural" look of the twine mimicking bare branches.

This is beautiful, Dawn. The twine is perfect as an accent.
Blessing hugs,

Awesome, Dawn! Another wonderful CAS from you! Love the design, the coloring and the simple embellishments. :^)
Hugs, Penny
P.S. I prefer warmth, too, but not quite as hot as it gets here half the year. Guess I am never satisfied--grass is always greener, huh? ;^)

Hey Dawn! This would go in the SCS CAS 188 challenge too. Love the colors and that cool tape on the sides. You always have the most wonderful ideas.

Alabama Fall is really just a break in the heat and about 1 week of leaves changing colors, but I am totally ready for that break in the heat.

Hugz!
