Get Well Card ~ Fall Colors (post #1)

Fall is coming very quickly and very soon the leaves will be falling from the trees.
Of course along with fall comes a not so welcome season... the cold season.
I made this card in hopes that it would cheer someone with this feel better soon sentiment.
I added two types of ribbon one right on top of the other to give it a two-tone feel.
Then added a button with a twine bow.
Here is wishing everyone a happy and healthy fall season.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Sentiment is from the Old Fashioned Florals stamp set from Flourishes.
*Design paper from the Recollections Night and Fall 12x12 paper pad.
*Circle punch from Marvy.
*Brown ribbon from Offray Spool o' Ribbon.
*Tan ribbon from Offray Straight 'n' Narrow.
*Twine from American Craft.
*Button from my stash.
*Stazon Timber Brown stamp pad.
May your day always be filled with love.

  12. This is a really beautiful card but I really wished you had not mentioned winter. I am still traumatized by the show over our windows last year. We pushed cars out twice a week. I hope we have a long fall. The sentiment is very cheery and I enjoy fall very much.
    We love to see your artwork, God Bless you for posting with us at Word Art Wednesday.
