Friendship tree

Hi there!

Temperatures started dropping in my part of the world too... very very slowly though, still reaching 38 degrees Celsius (100 deg F). Yes that's not a typo... this is Autumn in Abu Dhabi! Humidity also still high - desert meets ocean ...

So I have a Autumn card to share, well Autumn colors for a friendship themed card.



The tree was cut with my silhouette, leaves (cut from white card stock) colored with Promarkers, popped up using foam tape. Birdie is a die cut from Cottage cutz




The sentiment:




and for the inside...





The following challenges inspired my card:


Casology ~Autumn

 Cas-ualfridays ~ Fall colors and a leaf

  Die cuttin divas ~ Fall colors using a die 


Make my Monday Flowers or trees


That's it for now... have a super day!
