Welcome Fall

Welcome back!!
I know I know, fall hasn't started, but I am getting a head start, And I don't know about you but I am tired of this heat and humidity, so fall is going to be a welcome change for me.

I picked up a new stamp and matching die the other day and thought I'd use it before fall and winter really set in.

I really fell in love with this flower stamp and its so nice when you can get a matching die to make cutting the images out a breeze.

I used a gray tone for the card base and the paper under that lattice is a darker gray.
 So....... I decided to use a red satin ribbon and red lettering. 
I edged the word panels with Rhubarb Stalk.
That red really pops doesn't it!. 

My bow is a single loop bow and the Craft-Dee BowZ tool makes bow making so easy

Here is a closer view of the bow.

The bow maker tool can be ordered here

Such a pretty card. Love the flowers on top of the trellis background and of course your bow pops along with the sentiment.
