This week on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog the challenge was to use Fall Colors. I think they chose this challenge in hopes that it will bring on the Fall temperatures. After all it is officially Fall by the calendar. There's a new twist on the challenge. You don't have to use a Sassy Cheryl's image(although personally I can't imagine why you wouldn't), but if you do you get two entries in the challenge. I like better chances.
When I went looking for an image to use, I came across this one at the Sassy Cheryl's Digi Store. The image is called Day Dreamer Boy. When I saw it, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for my card. Fall conjures up images of lots and lots and lots of leaves at my house( my house sits in the middle of a forest of trees). I decided my little guy was sitting amongst a pile of leaves pondering one of life's deepest questions - to rake or not to rake.
I used my new Baby to cut out the leaves, using papers that I had printed from a digital kit and had on hand in my scrap box. The papers are from a free kit called Falling for Fall from Summer Driggs. I created the sentiment in Photoshop and don't know whether you can use it or not, but I've posted it below if you'd like to grab it.
