I just love the warm rich tones of fall flowers. While I know most of us start thinking about mums, why can't we have daises...that's the fun of stamping, you can make anything you want to fit the time of year.
When I first started card making several years ago it was all the rage to distress the edges of your paper and even tear the edges. I loved the look and still do. It may not be the "cool" thing to do any longer, but like fashion, I'm betting it's going to come back again.
