My first fall card

Hey,
Am back... Am back on a roll of making cards.. It's therapeutic for me.. I have been having some awful days... Plus an impending trip to Delhi.. Am soo excited....

Today I made a fall card using the current designed2delight image freebie.. The fall colours look pretty awesome.. I wonder I never tried such colours before... Anyways I ramble way too much so just take a look at the card.. It's a criss cross card.. For those of you who follow my blog know that I love special folds and criss cross is one of my favorites as you can make them quickly with very less wastage....

The card



The criss cross



The insert



That's it.. Simple and easy.. I love all the orange.. I am having unusual taste for cardstock colours.. oranges, green.. I think I am coming down with something...

I used a beige base cardstock which was bought locally, the orange cardstock is also bought locally. The PP was a birthday RAK from Ash.. The digi is a freebie from designed2delight progressive challenge. The insides have some petaloo flowers stuck together using brads bought from Karuna's store and some Pie Lane Swirls. The border punch is Ek success and have used some bling from my stash.. If you look closely at the image, the centers of the sunflowers have been done using Pie Lane glitter balls. Teh image is colored using ym Staedler water color pencils and the die cuts have been traced and hand cut...
