Here is my project for this challenge:

I just LOVE Autumn colors!  Don't you?  They remind of growing up in Chicago when the leaves would change colors and fall.  We would rake all the leaves together and then jump into the pile - to be a young child again.

Anyway, I made this card with my favorite fall colors:  Autumn Terracotta, Olive, Goldrush.  The paper pack that I used is actually a retired Close to My Heart paper pack called "Abundance" (X7073B). I just loved this paper pack when it came out and was sad when it retired.

This is an A2 size card:  4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I used our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge to cutout the word bubbles.  It can be found on page 65, D5, Accent 2, < b > cut at 2" and 2 1/4".  I edged one bubble with Olive ink.

The sentiment came from a retired stamp set called "Card Chatter - Thank You".  I used Autumn Terracotta and Olive inks for the sentiment by using a sponge dauber.
