Fall into Fall

Even though the calendar says 'summer', the signs of fall are everywhere.  Our temperature this morning is 48 degrees, and the leaves are starting to turn -- and fall -- in my front yard.
I'm posting today for Timeless Twine.  Our theme this month is "Fly into Fall".  I've modified it a bit to "Fall into Fall" for today's inspiration.

I used the colors of this photo and came up with this:

I love September!  The days are sunny, the sky is a beautiful blue, the nights are cool, and the leaves are beginning to turn.  Outdoors looks just like the colors of my leaf-shaped card.
This is a cutting file from The Cutting Cafe. It is the leaf shaped card cutting file.

The sentiment stamps on both these cards are from Joy's Life -- the "It's All Fall Puns" set.

Papers and buttons are from Close To My Heart.  The papers are the Pathfinder collection.
I used 3 Timeless Twine colors on these leaf-shaped cards -- Pumpkin Orange, Aqua Blue, and Chocolate Chip Brown

Join the Timeless Twine Twine-istas all month as we have fun with this theme and these amazing twine colors!
