Fall-ish Birthday

It was Daughter #3's Birthday almost two months ago now...  I had made this card earlier but left it "un-sentimented" so I could use it for whatever the occasion.  With all the festivies between mid-August and early September, I was frantic!  So..... I went to my box of pre-made cards and resurrected this one for her Birthday!


What I really liked about this card is the distressed woodgrain inking on the background.  I love the color I chose and how it played into the strip of cs, and a good contrast to the fall die cuts; however, it's the one thing that also didn't photograph the best!  Frustrating, but I'll get over it...and a close-up:

Hopefully the background woodgrain is more visible, and you can see a bit more of the inking I did on each of the dies.

Are you ready for fall?  Well, actually it's been going on awhile but I happen to love the fall air, the brisk mornings and all those gloriously colored leaves!  Hope yours is wonderful!

Hugs,
TK

  7. I can see the woodgrain in all your card photos, TK! Agree, it adds a lot to the card. I also LOVE that you've added blue to the mix of fall colours with the strip and sentiment. They look awesome together. xx
