Fall-time at Sunshine Mail

Happy October! It's time for a new Sunshine Mail Foundation Challenge (October 1-15). Our theme is "Fall" and the only real rule is that you send in at least one card (it doesn't have to be the card you enter in the challenge; Donation guidelines here).  



The window, shutter and windowbox dies are from Memory Box's Small Madison Window set, and are cut from a yellow Core'Dinations cardstock. The background is made from a cream-colored cardstock that I embossed with a Tim Holtz folder and inked with his Red Brick distress ink.

The leaves on the left were cut on my Bigshot with TH's Fall Garland die. The gold ones were cut from paper covered with Rolo foil, and the orange ones from a Core'Dinations cardstock. The tiny green leaves are from a plastic garland. The leaf trims are from May Arts.

The FBD digi stamp was colored with Copics, and pieced in three layers. Those acorns are so stinkin' cute! The sentiment piece on the inside is made from Doodle Pantry's Autumn Star digi set.
