Happy Fall!

It's getting to be cabin closing time in Minnesota; the air is crisp and damp and fall is definitely in the air! Tonite I played in a Crafty Secrets design team challenge and decided to go "fall" with my cards for the challenge. Our challenge was to use Crafty's Artsy Alphabet on any project.

Here I used an image from Crafty's "Summertime" booklet, but paired it with rust colored cardstock to make it more fallish. I love the wheat and pumpkin images on this seed catalog!

I've also been meaning to use this owl from Crafty's "Booklovers" set, and I found the perfect opportunity to use him! Last weekend at Haupt's Antique market, I bought a book of children's poems, and one of the poems was titled "the owl". I photocopied the poem and shrunk it down so that I could use it on this card.

I also scored vintage mother-of-pearl buttons for $2.00 a bag. They also had choose-your-own buttons for $2.00 per bag. I stocked up on black and brown ones for fall & halloween!
Also, don't forget to check out the other design team girlie's challenge cards on their blogs! Happy Monday!
