Another Fall Card

I'm going to be going to my first ever "shoebox swap" in a little over a month, so I pulled out an old SU sample from my box and remade it into this card. I used the SU set A Flower for all Seasons and some retired stamps, as well. I was SO proud of myself for not using any patterned paper. :-)

It's hard to tell in the top picture, but the scalloped circle punch makes a little window, and that layer is popped up with dimensionals. I used eyelets, ribbon, SU markers (which I hardly ever use anymore since I got my Copics...) and lots of sponging.

Here's a close up...
Hmmm.... I think I need to go back and add some sparkle!!

I'm off to a Christmas in July ladies' get together this morning at church. How fun. I am definitely getting in the Christmas mood!
