Fall is in the Air

It has been downright chilly hear lately! Today is actually a heat wave at 64 degrees. Josh and I have been missing some of our morning walks, because it has been 32 ! That's freezing! Literally! Regardless, the air is crisp, the leaves are floating to the ground, and the sky is blue as can be. Yep, fall is most definitely in the air. Therefore, my fall inspired card for today's Jbelle Tuesday challenge.

The challenge today is a sketch challenge. And I knew exactly which papers I wanted to use. These gorgeous, totally autumnal Captivating papers by Pink Paislee. Love 'em. I colored my image (PTI) with SU markers and a water color brush. Made a sentiment flag and accented it with this gorgeous Prima Say It In Studs piece. I use my photo corner punch to make the little flag ends.
