Autumn Season Birthday Card

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart is really getting into the autumn mode now. This is my 3rd card for the weekend! This card is not for a specific design team commitment so that makes for a nice break for me. Part of that break will be that I won't be linking it to oodles of FB groups or challenge blogs, just a few. 

Without further ado, this is Autumn Season Birthday Card=

Supply and design process notes:
a. reddish brown ink edging on the papers including base
b. the base is the olive green, a flat layer card with matching envelope from Darice
c. the bronze leaves with light green crystal mesh comes in a grid-like layout on a huge long sheet purchased at Dollar Tree in 2019; instead of having a strip of it on the side or near the bottom for a border I decided to do a 4-corner approach
d. the sentiment stamp is an oldie from Stampin' Up (I think it says 2001)
e. the floral print paper is another oldie that I've been hoarding; I've only got a few small scrap sections left of it. I love the loose abstract style of the flowers and leaves.
f. grass green cardstock strip is from Astrobrights line produced by Neenah
g. card was made in about 30 minutes

Facebook groups where I'll share the photo and/or posting link:
a. my personal profile
b. Mixed Media Creativity group; private group of artists and crafters; mediums used were papers, red-brown ink and black ink; stamping; mesh design sticker
c. Paper, Paper, Paper and Design Team Calls group; a sharing group for crafting bloggers and blog owners
