Autumn, beautiful Autumn

Good Afternoon fellow crafters...

Autumn is in full swing here so I made a fall card using the color changing leaves that are all over the place here as a jumping off point for my card.  I used an image from Tiddly Inks that was made I think meant as a spring image but I changed it to a fall image.

I like having multiple uses for my images...

I created the background on this card using a basket weave effect.  The final look is so cool but easy to create.  You just cut three different sheets of cardstock into strips and weave them together to create this basket weave look.  Using a backing cardstock helps to stabilize the woven strips.  Then cut to the size you need.

Spellbinders - nesting maple leaves
Distress Ink - Tea Dye
