Saturday Sample

For today's Saturday Sample, I'm showing a card we made in my card clubs this month.  This should get everyone into the mood for fall!  This makes a great notecard or thank you card.

In addition, I'm beefing up this sample by making it into a free project.  I'm giving you the list of supplies for the card PLUS instructions to create it.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

    Thanks! I love the way the embossing gives the leaves so much texture.
