Fall Birthday Wishes

 We're having beautiful weather this weekend, but you can still feel the fall season moving into place with the crisp air in the early morning.  I just love that crisp fall air!  I also love shuffling my feet through the leaves once they've hit the ground.  Thankfully we aren't that far into the season yet.

Today's card is a combination of The Paper Players request for a Birthday card (it's amazing how many people I know who are born in September, so this is a very timely challenge!) and the sketch is from Stampin' 411.

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend - Thanks for visiting!

Hi Joan, thanks so much for stopping by my blog. When I popped over here, I was excited to see that you joined us for the challenge at Paper Players. I love the colors on your card. That pop of blue is gorgeous as a backdrop for the subtle fall colors of the leaves. A perfect fall birthday card! TFS.
