Sensational Fall Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow!!

Well, the calendar may say it’s fall, but the 90+ temperatures and drought conditions would indicate otherwise! I’m hoping for crisp temperatures, vivid colors and wonderful aromas…I’ll just have to settle for a fall card!

This week’s challenge was to use the digi—Lord of the Harvest in our card. I wanted to keep this card simple…I can seriously run the risk of over embellishing my cards if left to my own devices. I had to reign it in this week and use restraint. I thought the curvy rectangles from Nestabilities would be a perfect shape for my card, along with some dry embossing! I paired the image with Riding Hood Red and Old Olive by Stampin’ Up. I topped off the card with Copic markers and taffeta ribbon from Stampin’ Up. Of course I took out my trusty Bow Easy for the perfect triple bow!!
I'm entering this card additionally in the following challenges:

Remember to stop back next Saturday for a wonderful Sugar Creek Hollow blog hop featuring Christmas images. Somehow, the air is going to become crisp!! Thanks for stopping by!!

I like how you kept the tag as the focus of the card. The bow is very pretty. I've been wanting a bow maker for a while now.

Very pretty card. We have temps at 90's her as well. Certainly doesn't look like fall here either.

Hi Nancy!
This is gorgeous! Love the pink distressing and the bow. Very pretty!
I do see that I really need to get my hands on one of those "bow-easy"-things. I am having such a hard time trying to tie a bow *LOL*
