Autumn Time

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsor for this week is Digital Delights by Louby Lou. 

The design team was given an awesome set of images to work with and I was having so much fun, I decided to make two cards!  Here is the first one:
The second card uses the sentiment circle and I really wanted it to be the focus of the card.
The sentiment reads "Those Who Are Happiest Are Grateful For Everything They Have."  I colored the leaves and then added some red nuvo drops to create some berries.  Finished everything off with some sparkly ribbon and a button.
