October Creative Cards

Happy Fall! I hope that you enjoy this months cards. I had been running some ideas through my head about fall colors and decided that I wanted to use some fall colors in my palette this month but still wanted them to be fresh and clean. I hope you find them to be that. The "Daisy" card front, the "Flowers" on the tags and "love" tag are my personal art that I have edited to share with you. I've also changed up the way I photograph the cards and the way they are arranged on the collage reference sheet. I hope that while the images are slightly smaller it will be easier to see the backgrounds and details. It's a trial... we'll see how it goes, but, I do hope you feel its an improvement as I do.
