Clear Dollar Guest Designer & PaperTake Weekly sketch #23

Hello! Greetings from West Texas! We are approaching our first "fall" here in El Paso and I am not sure what to expect! It has been staying pretty warm and there arent many leaves to actually change colors and fall off the trees... well there arent many trees out here in the desert, but still, the calender reveals that we fast approaching the first day of autumn, so I was inspired to create a card with an autumn feel. The sketch is from the papertake weekly challenge and I felt it just worked with the door from I a-door you. This dsp was suprise RAK from my BFF, called Autumn Meadows, something that I probably would not have chosen for myself, but, Cassie knows me so well, she knew I would love it, and she was right! I knew I wanted to use this stamp set, I A-Door You, designed by the talented Lori M. at Clear Dollar Stamps, the dutch door makes me think of both spring and autumn, when you can leave the door open to enjoy the fresh air of a transition season.
Also, this set is part of the ones I received as part of the privilidge of being a guest designer for Clear Dollar Stamps for the month of September. I have loved loved (guest) designing for Clear Dollar Stamps! It has been amazing! And thankfully, we are only less than half way thru September so I have a couple more weeks to soak up all that guest designing has in store for me!

Wow, Christi! I love how you used this set and how you colored it. I am so disappointed that this paper didn't make it into my order >:( I guess, I'll just have to make sure it gets on the last and final one!
