Fall has definitely arrived and as I look out my window I see a very cold, blustery day, just like these House Mice are experiencing.
This is my last week this month to be a guest design team member for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog for October and the theme of this week's challenge is FALL.
When I think of Fall I think of leaves blowing about, beautiful colors of nature, and crisp textures in leaves, corn husks and bare rolling hills. These are the elements I wanted to portray in my card for this challenge so I used my paper crimper for the leaves and background panel for the rolling hills effect and added rafia for dried straw or corn husk look and added distress ink in autumn shades.
