Not Quite Fall

Good morning and Happy Sunday!  The weather is finally cooling off, after some much needed rain last night.  We have had a long, dry summer this year.  The poor trees have been dropping leaves to conserve water and energy, and all the flowers are dried up within an inch of their short lives.  Fall is my second favorite season, next to Spring.  I hate to see the magnificent show of colors be limited by the heat and lack of rain.  Fall will be here in a few short days, whether the weather cooperates or not.

I created this card last week while wishing for cooler temperatures.  I used my Zig Clean Color brush markers for the wreath and some Tim Holtz Distress inks for the flowers.  I love the loose look of watercolor and have yet to master the technique, but I will keep trying.  

Thank you for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  I will be back soon with a couple cards to share.
