A Touch of Fall

Just had to take a break from Christmas - and I'm usually not much of a fall theme card person, but it was a nice break.  This digi is from Fred She Said, which I've had quite a while.  I would love to have that arrangement on my dining room table!  It is colored with watercolor pencils and cut with a circle cutter (didn't have a Nestie that big).  The background cardstock is Old Olive, Espresso, and probably an "In-Color" from SU that I didn't mark.  The fall leaves DP is from The Paper Studio and the sentiment is Stampin Up.  The lace was half price at Hobby Lobby and then dyed with Lumiere metallic paint in Bronze.  I do have a couple of close friends with September birthdays - this will be perfect!  Thanks for looking!
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - Fall colors
Digistamps4joy - the colors of fall
Happileigh Scrappin - Fall leaves
The Crafty Pad - Autumn Colors
Lexi's Creations - Autumn
Digital Tuesday - Celebrate the Season

  8. I would never have thought of staining the lace with the metallic paints like that! It's a wonderful idea! Now to go get my Lumiere metallic and give it a try! Thanks!
