Happy Fall - Cricut Artbooking cartridge

I purchased the Cricut Artbooking cartridge and stamp set a few weeks ago (found a good deal on eBay!) and have been waiting for a chance to play with it.   I thought making a Fall card would be a good start. 
I cut the tree with frame at 4.5" and the Fall frame at 3.25".  The Fall banner is actually the bottom portion of a frame, similar to the tree image; I just cut off the bottom and rounded the corners, since I wanted the word and not the frame.  I added a button and some small letter stickers to complete the sentiment.   I cut scraps of colored papers and placed them behind the openings in the tree frame and then added some antique linen stickles for a little bit of shine.  The card is 5" x 5", so even though it's a square card, it will fit in a 5" x 7" envelope so there won't be extra postage - yay!
Bitten by the Bug 2 has a Fall themed challenge this week, so I'm entering this card in their challenge.
