Hello Classy Friends!!!
Here it is September already, can you believe it?
Labor Day is over, the kids are back in school
and we are all thinking about "Fall" including the Design Team
at Classy Cards 'n Such....

The challenge this week is all about "Stripes~Dots~Chevrons"
in all the pretty colors shown in the inspiration photo below.

 I have been thinking of getting my Fall decorations out and normally
one of the first places I start is with my back door...
usually hanging a pretty "fall leaf spray" on it
which is where my card idea came from and using the inspiration photo.

I started with the cutest Impression Obsession Dot Straw
which I stamped three times and then cut out.

Adding next to my fall spray is the Impression Obsession Pine Branch
dies and shhh  don't tell anyone, but I snipped those poor birdies right off!!!

To finish the fall spray, I cut various small leaves from the 

I added a bit of Stickles to each leaf for some shimmer.
Then added my Maya Ribbon bow and a sentiment..

How beautiful! I love fall decorations. Made a new fall flower wall basket arrangement last year and wound up leaving it up all year. This is just lovely with all the different elements, and so cute to add the straws! Love it!
