Happy Fall Ya'll - {PP212} challenge

Today's post is for The Paper Player's {PP212} Happy Fall Ya'll challenge. Here is my FALL card.
I used the new SU Blackberry Bliss cardstock for my card base, love its rich deep color. I used the same color ink on my leaves along with More Mustard, Hello Honey, and Crisp Cantaloupe inks. Then I spritzed with water and crinkled in my hand to give it weathered look. The final touch of a twine tied button finished the embellishment.
The sentiment was created by stacking 6 die cuts together - I used SU's multi-purpose glue. I started with 3 layers of melon mambo on the bottom, then two layers of blackberry bliss and one Hello Honey on top. I really love the how it gives dimension and shadow. 
 Hope you like it too.
Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment to give your thoughts!

Back to School - Gramma's Class

This post is for my grandkids... just to drop a note and a check for perhaps some school needs.
My grandkids started school two weeks ago already. We always try to tell them we believe in them and that as long as they try their best, well that's good enough for us. We all can't be the best at everything, but we can try our best.  
They also love to do crafts with me when they come to Michigan to visit us.
They are like little sponges that soak up the inspiration from card samples of my previous card classes. They never stop saying "can we make that one Gramma", "can we make that one?" OF course we can is always my reply.
But truely.... they are so creative all on their own and I'm amazed every time I see what they create.  So in honor of being such good students, I'm making this card to hold my letter.  I just want to remind them I miss them, I wish them a wonderful school year, and to try to love learning.  Yeah right.
Here is my card.
Here is the inside.
I always tell them to use thier imaginations and never be afraid to be different. Gramma says: "there are no mistakes in class; just opportunities". We had some pretty fabulous opportunities together!
