Fall, Through the Window

I guess I should have said "Fall, Looking through the window" as no one is falling on this card, but these last few days I have been daydreaming about Fall.  It is so very hot here in CA, and is very much still Summer, but I can dream of warm days, crisp, cool nights and leaves starting to fall from the trees.
Here is the scene I have been dreaming of:
Serendipity Stamps Bare Tree Madison Grand Window Die
Behind the Madison Grand Window diecut from Poppy Stamps, I used Serendipity Stamps (Bare Tree) image, stamping off the ink for the first tree to make it look a little further away  Since this is a Fall card, I added some splotches of Fall colors using re-inkers and an aqua pen, just enough so it looks as though the trees still have a few leaves left on them.  The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny, Forever Fall Collection.  The bottom half of the card is embossed with a Darice striped embossing folder to look like wainscoting.  I added a Spellbinder label with a Serendipity sentiment (Everyday Words, small horizontal set).  The finishing touch is a pine bough swag punched with a Martha Stewart punch in Fall colors.  The boughs are tied up with a button and some jute twine.  This card is going to go to my Dad who has a Fall birthday.  If you would like to make a Fall card of your own using these stamps, make sure to check out the Serendipity store.

Cathy, I've been dreaming of Fall, too :) And hahaha, I love your little talk of the title...I didn't even think of falling through the window! The coors are beautiful, and I love that neat fall foliage hanging above the window.

Wow! Gorgeous Cathy - love the scene you created (and another stamp I don't have!) The trees are beautiful! I love the clever leaves you added for color. Beautiful!

This is beautiful! I love autumn and this card is making me anxious for it to start. Especially after our 100 degrees plus summer.

I haven't been blog hopping in a very long time. Now that the girls are back in school I hope to visit you more often. :) xo

This is one of the prettiest autumn cards I've seen! It's absolutely stunning! The details you added in like the fall leaves and the button/pine bough adorning the window are perfect!
