Autumn: The Mellower Season

Here is another card for the Verve Autumn Lovelies challenge.  The quote and background paper were in my "card parts" box; I'm not even sure why I started this card, it has a bit of a limited audience.  But, in making fall cards for someone, I really wanted to focus on finishing started cards.

The author of the quote, Samuel Butler, was a novelist who had a lot of pithy statements that might be familiar:

The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.

Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises.

Man is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with the victims he intends to eat until he eats them.

Every man's work, whether it be literature, or music or pictures or architecture or anything else, is always a portrait of himself.

I do not mind lying, but I hate inaccuracy.

All animals except man know that the ultimate of life is to enjoy it.

Friendship is like money, easier made than kept.
