Autumn Birthday

Another Autumn birthday card. Lots of Autumn inspiration beginning to show up outdoors. Trees are changing color, nights are cooler (thank heaven), and the part I least like about Autumn-the days are getting shorter.

Today I am entering this card in:  Let's capture these sketches #30, which is the way I started on this card (sketch above). I will also enter it in Color Throwdown #209 and fab N Funky#138, anything to do with Harvest Festival. I'm thinking the Harvest Festival in Britain is simuliar to the county/state fairs here in the states-displaying goods from the harvest. I chose this Stampendous stamp of a birdhouse with sunflowers and pumkins, and of course, fall leaves, are symbols of fall around here in the northern midwest USA.

The image is stamped on Beckett Expression White with Momento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copic Markers. I cut  it out with Spellbinders Label 6, sponged around it in the die with Scattered Straw Distress Ink. I then traced around the die on SU Old Olive and fussy cut to mat the image. I popped it up with foam dots.
Stamps: Stampendous 'Sunny Birdhouse'; sentiment Sweet n' Sassy Birthday expressions.
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
DP: DCWV Autumn Mat stack;  SU (gold background-don't know what it's name is).
Cardstock: SU Chocolate chip, Old Olive, REally Rust
Accessories: Spellbinders label 6, Ribbon banners; Copic Markers, CTMH sponge
