  3. Love the colors and textures on your first card, and the adorable bear! Fun picture changer card too! I love the apple tree scene!
    I like orange, burgundy and brown.

  4. the colors with the bear would be
    good. The other is a little too bright
    for fall. Like orange, yellow, brown,
    thanks for sharing.

  12. You're skills with alcohol markers is amazing! How did you do the leaves for the first card? Was it embossing powder?
