I don't know what the weather is like where you live, but we've had a longer than normal summer and it has been fall-like for only a couple weeks. Leaves are turning, leaves are falling, and yet some trees are still garbed in green.
As I designed cards for my last two classes, I included both fall and Christmas. As I design cards, I often find them nice, but... That happened with this card. It was the bow on the strip of dry embossed Blackberry Bliss card stock that gave me the result I wanted.
When I stamped the leaves, I wanted them to "tie together", which I accomplished with the Blackberry Bliss cluster that include their own bow. I'm not sure you can see it, but I also added a tiny rhinestone to the center of the stamped bow.
