Happy Fall Card

I went to ScrapFIT and they have a 2009 Challenge Blog Owner Blog Hop.  So I signed up.  Their site's challenge is to make a "Happy Fall Card".  So here's mine. Hope ya like it!

I used a dingbat of a mother and child walking together and turned it into an image and then vectorized it.  Then I cut it out on my Craft ROBO.  Then I cut out Happy Fall on some really flimsy fall paper!  Good grief!  Well I chalked the silhouette and the outline of the title and then added gel pens with glitter and metallic specks to the edges of everything.  Can't you smell the sweet smell of the leaves as they start to ferment in the sun?  Mmmmmmm! 

This is what the inside of the card looks like.  I used the same autumn paper as the front and highlighted a leaf in each dominant color with Stampin Up! pens and used the gel pens to accent the edges.  The lower section has ribbon tape from Michaels and a felt leaf with a little blingy on it!  I live where there really aren't many trees and they certainly don't shed many leaves in the fall.  So included a pithy comment for my wonderful parents as they have many maple trees in their yard and two of them are so huge it is beyond comprehension to me!

This is a close up of the upper portion of the inside of the card.  I wanted the leaves to pop out and wetting certain papers with patterns can cause them to pop!

Here is the lower portion of the inside of the card.  I wrote the sentiment with a metallic gel pen.  I did use a pencil and a guide to make lines.  I am not one of those lucky people who is blessed with perfectly straight handwriting! 
I hope you enjoyed my card and if you have any questions or want a copy of the dingbat I used just let me know.
Thanks, Natalie
