Fall frolic

Hi there!

Fall... my favorite time of the year.

 Just couldn't resist to make a Fall card. Perhaps I tried to get the feeling of Fall by making this card, because:

1 ~ after 3 years of living in the Northern hemisphere, I'm still not used to Fall being in September!  September used to mean only one thing : SPRING!

2 ~ in this part of the world there is actually only one season, SUMMER, SUMMER, SUMMER,SUMMER , 4 times a year! With only palm trees around, I can't remember when last I saw an autumn leaf!

So, let's celebrate Fall on paper ;)

My card:






The sentiment is a freebie from the sherlocks home, I would like to give credit to the artist for the free digi but I cant find the blog from where I downloaded it, sorry! (It was one of the blogs listed on free digital stamps)
Digi paper from  the pixelscrapper.
