Break out the rake!
I'm so ready for fall. It was so hot this summer I just hibernated inside in the air conditioner the whole time. I'm ready to get outside and plant some fall flowers in my planters and hubby's ready for me to pull some weeds and grass.
I made the following card with an old Mojo Monday sketch and one of the digis offered this week for the challenge at Digi Doodle Shop's Best. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I did some doodling around the frame of the image too. I loaded it with my handmade flowers and used some leaves from Fred, She Said Designs Paper Roses digi set. The kraft paper at the top was run through a paper crimper for texture. This one is being entered in a lot of challenges because one of the requirements for the Digi Doodle challenge was to enter you project in as many challenges as possible, plus . . . it's fun!
