Autumn Days...

Hi fellow Magnolia lovers! Well, here we are, well into another fabulous weekend!! And the temps are finally getting a little cooler (OK, in the high-80's in VA...but that's cooler! LOL)...and in just a couple of days it'll be officially fall...coincindentally, it also happens to be almost time for DH and I to go on vacay! just a few days, we'll be sitting at our fave beach in the Caribbean! YAY!! But for right now, I'm thinking thoughts of Autumn. Now, it couldn't possibly have anything to do with all those darling Autumn Magnolia stamps I just ordered...or the fact that I just received my new Autumn Magnolia Ink mag...nope!! I LOVE this time of year!! So...I just had to dig out some fall papers and make a litle Tilda card enjoying the fall leaves!!
Here's the recipe:

Cardstock: Very Vanilla (SU)
DPs: From Recollections - Autumn collection (got it last year from Michael's)
Punches: MS maple leaf
Dies: Magnolia Doohickeys (lacy flower, leaf, & lace edge)
Sentiment: JustRite stamps (stamped with Dusty Durango ink from SU)
Baubles: Stampingbella
Button, rope, & charm: my stash
Copics: E13, 11, 00, 000, 0000 (skin), R20 (cheeks), E25, 99, 33, YR21 & 20 (hair), R02, 01, 00, 000 & E08 (shirt), B97, 95, 93, 91, 41, & 0000 (overalls), E37, 35, 33, 30 (boots)...and a few dots of Sharpie Extra fine point poster paint.

I am entering this little card in the following challenges:

7 Kids College Fund Challenge # 4 (theme: fall) HERE
Totally Tilda - challenge # 5 (theme: make your own flower) HERE
Just Magnolia (theme: lace it up) HERE

Thanks so much, friends, for stopping by for a peek. And thanks for taking time to leave comments...I really do love hearing from all of you!! See you soon. Pat

Ok Pat, I am drooling on that Nestie die. I bought one too and eventually it'll come someday.
Hey, I love this autumn theme. It really reminds me the pain of raking the falling leaves, lol just kidding!!
Seriously, your card is beautifully done and I love the way you spread the leafy embellies around the background and the matching DP inside. Very pretty Tilda as usual of course :o)
