Get Ready for Fall

This is one of the cards I gave my sister-in-law as her birthday present.  Fall isn't quite quite here yet, but I've already transitioned in my mind.  Actually we never had a full-fledged summer here in Northern CA; it stayed pleasantly cool and comfortable.  

This card uses a retired stamp set called Branch Out.  I loved that set and wish it hadn't retired so soon.  Have you heard of a product called Flower Soft?  The Fall blend makes this tree come alive as if it is part of a tranquil scene in New England during leaf peeping season.  The muddy red boots and tire swing complete the scene.

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:

Stamps:  Branch Out (Retired), A Little Birthday Cheer (Retired)
Ink:  Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black
Paper:  Early Espresso, Whisper White, Old Olive
Accessories:  Early Espresso Marker, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Modern Label Extra-Large Punch
