Happy Fall Y'all!

As it's nice and sunny here in Pittsburgh, but a little chilly, I thought I'd dig into my October Key Ingredients kit to create a warm and yummy fall card.  :)  I started with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and used an old set from Taylored Expressions called Frightful Night.  I know, it doesn't look very frightful, does it?  Well, I used the tree image from the set and the bat trio image upside down to create the leaves.  Ever since Jami used the bats for leaves a few years ago in her post HERE, I LOVED the idea and decided to use it for my card today.  I used different colors to give a "fall leaves" appearance and added Cinnamon Stickles from the Key Ingredients to add some sparkle to the leaves.  The sentiment is from the A Year of Sweet Sentiments set. 

The focal image was die cut using the Take Note Die 3.  I hand cut the matte.  Finally, I added the button and the scalloped piece along the bottom using the Scalloped Eyelet Border die.

Hope you're having a beautiful day!  Thanks for stopping by!
