September, 2011 Mingle

YEAH! The Mingles are back!  Isn't it strange how we miss something as simple as doing one special card a month for one special person!?!  The Mingles have no theme.  The only requirement is to make one card a month and send it to your Mingle partner by the 20th of the month.  Very simple yet very fun.

Here is my Mingle card for September:

The background is Magnolia Fall Background.  I stamped it on SU's Sahara Sand using Memento Rich Cocoa.  Then I used my daubers and daubed each leaf with fall colors.  I added light blue on the wind swirls.
I used Tilda with Sunflower for my main image and colored her with Copics.  I put Cinnamon Toast Fun Flock on the center of the sunflower. Tilda was popped up with Dimensionals.
The banner is a piece of grosgrain ribbon from my stash stamped with "Fall is in the Air" and attached with two dark green brads.
The ribbon behind the bouquet is from the stash.  The flowers and berry clusters were from Wild Orchid Crafts, Hooked on Craft and Magnolia.

The inside of the card is also very fallish!

Tilda seems to be enjoying the last days of Indian Summer with Rufus and Kitty Cat. 
The stamps used here were Sitting Fall Tilda, Picnic Quilt, Oak Tree, Rufus, and Kitty Cat.

All images were colored with Copic markers.  I had so many out, I didn't even try to keep track of what ones I used on the card.

I love the way this card turned out - very fallish and fun to put together.

I am entering this card in the Magnolia-licious Highlights challenge for the Fall or Back to School Projects.  I think it qualifies for rich fall colors.

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing a few minutes of fall leaf beauty.  Please leave a comment so I'll know you were here!
