Hi Again Friends,

We have about 5 more days of summer and fall will officially begin this Saturday.  I love summer, but I look forward to fall and I love it just as much.
The card  I made is a transition from summer to fall.  I have used a bright summer paper at the bottom and a fall styled paper at the top. For the  butterfly I used contrasting summer colors,I have the butterfly flying from summer into fall-- For my sentiment I used "What would I do without you... thanks!  from Inkadinkadoo set inked with  Jenni Bowlin Brown sugar.  To me that could depict summer, thanking summer for what it has given me.  The butterfly is from the Rock Princess cricut cartridge. Card stock PTI Kraft and print paper. Other DCWV I also used Creative inspiration paints (winter frost) on the star of the butterfly as stitching, it gives it a touch of iridescence. I used three layers of paper from my stash for the butterfly

  10. Hi Diana - this is a lovely card and a great idea to depict the move from summer to autumn. We've got chilly autumnal mornings and evenings here in the south of the UK but lovely warm sunny weather during the day, so your beautiful butterfly would feel right at home here! Love your leaf DP. Thank you for linking up to The Crafty Pad this week for our "Autumn Colours" challenge.
