Hello, Autumn!

Here in New Jersey where I (Lauren) live, we've been having the loveliest fall weather imaginable. The days are sunny but free of summer's humidity, the nights are cool and crisp, and the leaves are just starting to change color. It's such a beautiful time of year, I thought I'd try to capture it in card form using some of my favorite Eyelet Outlet goodies:

I had a lot of fun playing with these lovely floral layering stamps, and I really like how they look on a background of vintage text paper. But of course I always want my cards to have texture as well, so I added Stitched Flower BradsStitched Flower Mini Brads and Leaf Brads in similar shades to give my collage some dimension. 

A little strip of Glitter Gold Washi makes my diecut sentiment pop. And who can resist a few beautiful orange Butterfly Brads and Mini Butterfly Brads(Not me, lol!) A little bit of machine stitching is a great finishing touch, and this card is ready to be mailed!

What's your favorite thing about autumn... and how could you use it to inspire your next creation?

plans to spend as much time outside as possible before winter arrives; 
and a bit of time on her blog, as well!
