The Last of Summer's Blossoms

Wow! I can't believe it's OCTOBER already! Today I want to share a card with you using Unity's new Kit of the Month {... Wherever You Go}. I was just outside looking at the last of my summer flowers and decided that that would be my inspiration for my next card. Some of the blooms are still bright and vibrant... but then a few have already started to lose their color and fade away. I know it won't be long until they're all long gone & I thought I would capture their beauty on paper. :)

Thanks a Million
