Another Gently Falling Card!

Hello there, how is your day going?  Good, I hope!  I'm back again with yet another post.  This one started out being inspired by another favorite stamper, Wendy Weixler.  There were two cards I'd seen on her blog - the first from a recent Control Freaks Blog Hop, and another from her blog back in 2010.  I made my version on a clouded-out night at my favorite annual stargazing event which is held each fall in Borrego Springs.  I shared it with my stampers last weekend.  This baby took not one, not two, no, not even three, but a full FOUR stamps to mail!  Mailed one to my mother-in-law, and one to my upline.  The other two I made are going to be hand-delivered to my folks and my brother.

I used Mary Brown's trick for making bows using brads, and I love how it looks!  The inside of my card is a repeat of the bottom stamped layer (my DH loves it that I design the inside of cards instead of leaving them plain card stock).

Thanks for taking some time today to visit my little blog... I'll have another post for you tomorrow!

Very pretty. Love the contrast of the leaves on the white (vanilla?) card stock layer. Very worth 4 stamps :)

Very pretty, Cheryl! And well-worth the postage to mail it.
