Fantastic card, Elise! I'm so with you about the fall colors. Yummy! LOVE the little duckling, totally cute. And wow for the leafs. They are beautiful, great idea to pin one down like that!

GOOOOOOOLY goodness SAKES alive Elise. You just make my jaw drop, my EYES pop and my lips CURVE into a big fat smile everytime I see one of your projects. First off - the graphic - eyepoppin fun! THEN the inspiration photo - I wanna come back to Calif! It almost made me tear up to see those rich, robust colorful snippets of a happy time. FINALLY your card - beyond adorable it's just DUCKY!! LOL I swear I looked at this card 3 times before I read "Dandy" not Ducky. My brain was processing the word it THOUGHT would be there based on the photo of the adorable duck. Be in any case it's just ducky and dandy - love the ribbon with the pin and leaf. Thanks for being a great hostess. I'm betting lots will want to play with this stunning color palette.

Sweet fall lovin friend of mine you have once again CAPTURED the essence of fall in our little corner of the woods. Photo montage???be still my heart! Makes me want to grab up my camera and hit a photo shoot locale right now...I was driving north yesterday and saw just the smallest inkling of grapeleaves starting to TURN....just sayin! I'm as happy as your little duck swimming in a pond to see the autumn colors come creeping in! Fab card and challenge Miss E!

I love this little duck and all the fall colors you surrounded him with! The stitching looks great and that big honkin bow (pun intended) looks perfect! I love fall and I love this card!
