So Blessed!

I love the colors of Fall!  Even though Florida does not get all of the full-fledged flaming colors of Fall at this time of year, the light still changes to a more golden hue and the air has a clear crispness (even if it's hot!) that is noticeably different than summer.  As November and the end-of-year holidays approach, my heart always turns toward giving thanks for being "so blessed!"

Isn't this BoBunny paper gorgeous?!  It has beautiful yellows, golds, oranges, pinks, reds, purples, and even a few flecks of green and makes for an elegant Fall card, especially when paired with shimmering ink and satiny two-toned ribbon.

This is a asymmetrical design that begins with a narrower-than-usual card base.  Then an overhanging element brings the overall finished dimensions to the traditional 4.25 x 5.5 inches that will fit in a standard envelope.

Here you can see the hint of gold on the underside of the rust colored satin bow, and Darsie's beautiful stick pen that reflects the pops of pink and green in the designer paper.  There are lots of layers using simple shapes with just enough fancy.

Here are the supplies I used, all from Stamp Simply:
