A Little Casing for Today...

Fall is in the air here.  We have been having BEAUTIFUL weather.  I just love it.  Autumn is my most FAVORITE season.  As such - most of my cards that I have been making lately are in Autumn colors.  I saw this fabulous birthday card by Maille Belles on the cover of Papercrafts this month, and needed to recreate it
Here's my take:
Ever so slightly different, my dimensions are different than the original - hers were 5.5"x3.5" mine is a traditional A2 sized card.  Also, I have modified the color palette, and used a different image from Turning a New Leaf for the focal panel.  I LOVE the way this turned out, and I think I will be using this again in the future, perhaps next time my translation will not be so literal, I didn't realize until I just went back to look at the cover that I used a very similar birthday sentiment *blush*.

Thanks to Maille Belles for the FABULOUS inspiration!!

Hope you all have a GREAT Sunday!!!
