Fabulous Friday - Autumn's nearly over but ....

At least the snow hasn't arrived yet!  You watch, I'll be eating those words LOL!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Remembrance post, it meant so much to me!

For today's post we, at Polkadoodles, are on our Inspiration week for our
Autumn/Fall colours challenge.

I decided to make my card from papers off the fabulous Dollie Daydream Goes East collection.

I placed a second layer on top of the first by cutting 5 strips out of the second layer and raising those up on foam tape.  This adds a little dimension to card.

I love the little fans in this collection and couldn't resist adding one to the ticket sentiments.  I did form the fan to make it stand our more.

For the inside I used the same papers as the front and then added a message panel with another of the fans.

I love Oriental style cards, they always look so elegant, don't you think :-)

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
