This is the perfect name for this stamp set: AUTUMN FUN, because I think autumn is the best of all the seasons. I love the colors, the festivals, the cooler weather, and the football games of the season. It also holds the fun holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving. I am so eager for it to arrive.

For this card, I used more mustard cardstock, a pumpkin pie scrap, a piece of Basic Grey's Indian Summer collection, white, and an old piece of cardboard. I colored the image with copics, and added the sunflower buttons as the only embellishments. Have a happy hop, and good luck in the drawings.
