That fall magic

Happy Glee day everyone, LOL! I know I'm not the only one out there excited for tonight's episode. ;)
There is still plenty of time to get your name in the hopper for this week's blog candy just check out this post here...
Ok, so onto my card for the day. This one is for the Anyone for Anya challenge to use fall colors. Which was perfect because I just got my new Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg paper pack... but what about my vow to use up scraps first? Well, after the wonderful response I got for using the cover sheet packaging earlier this week I knew I was in good company and that you are a group of gals who can appreciate revisiting that idea once again. :)
So I cut and pieced together the little pattern samples to make this card and even though it was more work than the last time, I have to say I'm diggin' the smaller scale of the patterns for my cards plus I really do like turning those scraps into something cute.
I used Fairy Eva (one of my all time fave TGF stamps), though I did open her eyes up to give her a bit of a different look. And I also Glimmer Misted the paper leaves but it may be a bit hard to tell that in the photo.
