Here is my take.
Honestly, this trigger reminded me of a potholder. Yes, I know that's kind of weird, but I used to make these woven potholders when I was a little girl. I decided to use that weaving technique to make a panel for the front of my card.
I picked papers that reminded me of Fall and cut them in 1/2" strips and wove them together. The leaves and the chipboard letters were in the package I won from American Crafts. I thought they added a nice touch and the colors were perfect for this challenge.
