Featuring Fall

Inside of Card
This is an odd little card that I made... I know its very different.... it started with that strip of paper on the bottom of the card....then I wanted the pumpkins... and hand-cut the flowers to make the pumpkins more a part of the card...then there was that that I had cut the wrong size for another card a while back...and it was begging me to try it on the card...I have no idea why...but I liked it.... maybe you do too...just maybe you are not thinking "why in the world did she add the tree?"....
