Summer Yet? Card

Hello and Welcome!

Fall is definitely in the air here in Minnesota. I have started wearing sweaters and the shorts are heading into storage. Oh, how I miss those long sunny days. Here is a card that seems to capture my feelings:

The cat stamp is from The Cat's Pajamas' Official Grinch stamp set. I paper pieced the sweater. The leaves are from Papertrey Ink's Delightful Dahlia set and were heat embossed and colored with Zig Clean Color markers. The sentiment is by Sweet n' Sassy stamps. I finished this card off with ribbon and espresso sequins from Kat Scrappiness.

This card is entered in:
  • The "Autumn" Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp

Thanks for stopping by,
