My nod to Fall on this card brown color, the bit of burlap (thx Amy), and one bitty leaf on the cup.
The blue base is a scrap from a million years ago that I've been
hoarding, um, saving. A bit of burlap and the stamps are all from EH, with the exception of the little leaf; Verve. I watercolored the cup with my zigs. Much prettier irl. We've got that Midwestern rain thing going on, though not like what's happening in MN & IA.
Here's my take on the inspirational photo, though slightly different.
I didn't have a brick stencil, or any brick dp, so I kept the grid pattern with what I've used. The box is from N&T, and I love it! Studio Calico bear stamp, and I fussy cut him. The little 'happy birthday' banner he's holding was a gift from Geri G. many, many long times ago. Thx Geri! And I've got to run my friends, DH duty calls! : ) Happy dances everyone.
