Autumn Magic / Spring Wonder

Wherever you are in the world you are either watching the season turn to spring or fall.  And even though we are still having a heat wave here in California, I can see signs of fall peeking right around the corner. The evenings are a bit cooler, leaves are starting to turn and I can hear and feel a calm breeze blowing. 

This month at Anything But A Card Challenge we are celebrating the changing of the seasons and our prompt is "Autumn Magic / Spring Wonder". My design team project consisted of a picture frame I found on clearance at my local craft store. 
 "Everyone must take time to sit & watch the leaves turn"... Elizabeth Lawrence
I saw this quote and it really spoke to me because sometimes I just get so busy I don't take time for the small things. Before you know it summer is gone we're going into Christmas and you wonder where did the time go. I decided to create a window to watch those leaves change from season to season.  I really had fun getting out my Flower Soft product that I've had for several years and playing with it. 

 I love the texture it provides for your projects and it's so easy to use. I really hope you will stop by Anything But A Card blog for some wonderful inspiration. This theme will run 3 more weeks so you have plenty of time to bust out your goodies and get messy. But remember create anything but a card using the prompt provided and then link back to our blog here so others can be inspired by your creativity.

If you would like to view my process you can check out my tutorial on SNAPGUIDE below. Have a beautiful week !

Toni I love your take on Autumn/Spring. So really clever to give your project the appearance of looking through a window. Beautiful colours - you are so talented. It is a pleasure to be working alongside of you xx
