Happy Fall with Card Patterns #133

Fall is definitely in the air here in Montana.  The mornings are very cool and the days have been nice and warm.  The weather has been absolutely perfect!!  I have put up a few fall decorations and I have several more that I want to make.  I don't know if you are a Pinterest fan, but there are a lot of beautiful fall inspired photos that inspire me to create using the colors and textures of fall.  Take this photo for instance:

Doesn't this photo totally inspire you?  I have tons of ideas flowing through my brain and I can't wait to create!!!  In fact, I used some fall inspiration to make this week's Card Patterns sketch!

 I absolutely adore their stamps and the Farming Oliver stamp was perfect for my fall mood!!
I colored him with my Copic Markers and fussy cut him out and glued him onto a die cut piece of notebook paper.  I added some burlap for a patch and some die cut felt leaves and acorn.  I just love him!!

Supplies used:
Farming Oliver Stamp:  Sparkle Creations
Patterned Paper: Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar
Papertrey Ink:  Rustic Cream Cardstock, Notebook Paper Die, Autumn Acorn Die and Stamps, Friendship Jar Fall Fillers Stamps
