Celebrate Autumn at The Four Seasons

Welcome by again today, everyone.  Can you believe it's November already?  The weather here in the Nevada desert has finally cooled down a bit and we've actually been able to turn off the A/C.  We haven't yet turned on the heat, but it'll happen soon enough, I'm sure.  For now, I'm enjoying extra cups of hot coffee, warm snuggly blankets, and my favorite sweatpants.  Over at The Four Seasons Challenge, it's time for another FUN Autumn challenge and we really hope that you'll join us.
When we say that "you can let the inspiration photo speak to you in ANY way", we really mean it.  Come on...there wasn't ANY blue in the inspiration photo and look at my card.  The inspiration photo is just a starting point, so have fun with it.  I used basic black and basic white cardstocks for this card.  On the white cardstock, I rubbed Tim Holtz Oxide Inks, stamped a SNSS script background, and splattered some black paint.
I added some burlap, some bundled Ivory Burlap String, and attached a bow tied with Bold Check Black Gingham Ribbon.  The leaves and sentiment are from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  We all hope that you'll stop by The Four Seasons to play along.  Have a wonderfully creative week and thanks again for visiting.

I'm playing along here in these FUN challenges I love:
