Fall Paper Fun

For these two seasonal cards, I pulled out some retired fall design paper from SU called Autumn Meadows. For the first card I used an older sketch from Viva la Verve (Jan 2011) because I love the way it showcases the design paper and because its so quick and easy to follow. For the second card, combined inspiration from two different sources. I was inspired by my SU demo, Krista Fenton to use a second layer of the same color cardstock as my base but then ink the edges to create a border. A cute card I found in Stamp It Techniques (on page 46 by Ashley Harris) was my other source. She paper peiced a pumpkin using cute paper and used a clean and simple style by adding only a sentiment underneath in order to let the pumpkin stand out. I'm not used to leaving so much white space on a card but I like the effect.
Enjoy what remains of the fall!!
