Autumn Leaves

I am so ready for fall!  Here in Pensacola, FL it is still so hot and humid!  The high today is supposed to be 81 degrees.  Apparently the fact that it is the beginning of October doesn't mean anything in the Florida panhandle.  To console myself, I used fabulous fall colors on my project.  Our theme this week is Lots of Layers, so I got to play with lots of colors and patterns.

The image is Stringing Autumn Leaves from our sponsor, Lemon Shortbread.  She is colored with Copic markers.  I got the idea to create a leaf garland from a card I ran across during my travels through blogland.  You can see the inspiration card on this blog.  I loved the coffee cup garland so much!  When I was designing the layout for this card, the garland popped into mind and I knew a leaf garland was a great touch.  The leaves were cut using my Silhouette Cameo.

I hope you pile on your layers and come play with us.  There is a prize of three digital stamps up for grabs.  Click on the badge below to pop over to the shop and check out all of the wonderful Lemon Shortbread stamps.
