Challenge #5 :: Fall Themed

Can you believe its been 6 months since this all started?
It's that time again, our 7th DT member:

Cabio's term begins September 1st. Please give her a nice warm welcome here on
this post and be sure to check out her blog and share some love!

Welcome to the Oozak Challenge Blog!
We had over 200 entries last month... woot!  You should check them out if you haven't already - each and every one sure brightened each and every day of July.  Congratulations to the latest challenge winner, whom you'll find in the right side bar of our blog!!

My name is Joan, and I'm so thrilled to host the August challenge - all about Fall!  Geez... time sure flies.  But at least we have another month of warm/hot weather to enjoy.

Who doesn't love the colors of Fall?  To me, it's like a different kind of romance.  The warm hues of yellow, orange, red and brown gives comfort to the soul.  Of course, there are a lot of wonderful things like Thanksgiving, Halloween, Black Friday... oh don't let me start talking about Black Friday!  Hee hee.

Anyway, here's my card for this challenge:

All the elements of this card feature images from the Key To Joy stamp set by Unity.  The main background and Spellbinders Labels 17 die cut were stamped and inked with ColorBok. The butterfly image and part of the key were colored with Copic Markers (YR18, YR16, YR15, Y17, Y08, 100, C7, C5, B24, B23).

Now check out what the rest of the Oozak DT has made for you this month...
