Welcome Fall

Today’s post is a very simple beauty using the gorgeous color combo of cajun craze and soft suede Stampin Up cardstock.    This card features the lovely background sunflower stamp #123606 and the center of the flower is the scallop circle punch #119854 and the 1.5 inch circle textured with the pefect polka dot #117335 embossing folder.  I added the sentiment from the It’s your day stamp set #123682 and accented with the retired polka dot ribbon to create a very quick and beautiful card.
