Greetings on a rainy evening, boy did it rain here today. A steady downpour from around 7:00am till about 5:30pm. The wonderful thing about that other then the plants get a good ol' drink is that it is a perfect evening to card... like I really need an excuse :).

First off hellllooo Mojo Monday :). I had no idea what I was going to do with this card. I like to take a peak at the sketch first thing in the morning then think about it during the day so I have an idea, not today though. I love how it all just came together though once I hid away with my supplies.

I have had  these 3 Fall Matstacks for years, in fact I think I brought them when my son was young and I though I might scrapbook... he is almost 18 now sooo. I was determined today though to used some paper from one of the stacks.

I love the rich autumn feel of my selection, I think the pretty sheer ribbon, brown sparkle fancy floss and gorgeous Prima flower match it perfectly. I punches out a couple of branches and clear embossed them, then secured them under the flower with a small bow from the floss. I used two EK Success punches for the edges, added pearls and voila.

As my sister keeps reminding me to share, please click on the picture below to see the card a little bigger.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-DCWV, TPC Studio-Flourish Text, Spellbinders- Diecut, EK Success-Border Punches, Martha Stewart Branch punches, Prima Flowers, Kaisercraft pearls, Sew Easy Fancy Floss, misc ribbon
