Day 25 - A quiet little card
My papercrafting table is right in front of a large window looking out into the upper branches of an ash tree in our front yard. Leaves that at first dropped one at a time now cascade from the tree as fall deepens, and the oak and elm trees are showing their skeletons as well. More leaves are on the ground than on anybody's branches, that's for sure.
It makes for a reflective and quiet mood sometimes, sitting in front of a window watching time actually pass in the annual shedding of leaves from growing plants who will now become dormant for the long cold months.
My card today is a quiet celebration of this rite of passage. The colors do not scream, "Look at me!" Instead there is more - well - quietness to the design. I added a double organdy bow to the tag, its transparency a symbol of the invisible way our time slips past if we don't take a moment to stop and savor it.
