CR84FN39 - Fall Anyone?

Time for some beautiful fall colors with  CR84FN39 colors.

I also created this project for the Hero Arts Monthly Contest  which is Autumn, Window Cards or a color challenge.  I liked the effect of the tree stamped on the window and in the background. It gives it a little spooky effect.

The front of the card is glimmer misted, sponged and a torn layer of a piece of text from a book. I think it looks like an old front of a house in Tuscany perhaps?

The frame is from Hero Arts and I was inspired to purchase it because of my friend Jacqueline who uses this frame so beautifully.

The stamps are all Hero Arts except the sentiment which is Memory Box.

This is great Sue. Fab colours and I love the depth that your double stamping has created. I can see what you mean about the background looking like an old Tuscany house. It's very effective.

I won't be able to visit for a few days as my Hubby and I are off to Wales for a few days. I'll drop by sometime next weekend. Have a good week.
