Happy Tuesday Friends!! I hope you are having a great beginning to your week!!  Fall is really beginning with the changing colors of the leaves and the cooler nights.

Today I am popping in to share a card I made for this week's Shining the Light challenge.

For my creation I used the new Autumn Blessings and Leaves background stamps from ODBD.
