fall farewell

Even though the season won't officially end for a few more weeks, it seems like fall is over.  I really fell in love with SU's Fall Foliage set and am sorry that I didn't put it to more use this year.  This card started out a few weeks ago when I created the collage print.  Problem was, I got some smudges on the bottom when I was embossing the original sentiment.  Not wanting to waste anything in my craft room, I put it aside with the intention of "fixing it up" later.  Well, it's finally later. 

I cut the original print and put an avocado strip at the bottom.  I wrapped it with grosgrain ribbon and accented it with a button bow.  The "thank you" sentiment is from Technique Tuesday's Loving Words set from Ali Edwards.  I {heart} this set.  The font and words are perfect.  The white embossing is a nice contrast to the dark chocolate base.

Hope you make some time today to get inky!  Thanks for visiting.
