Card Recognition

fall friend


There are a number of fall/leaf challenges at the moment and I wanted to make one to help celebrate the season that I'm going to miss this year (we're doing winter/spring/winter/spring with our international move later this year). So please, all of you in the northern hemisphere, please enjoy fall, because I've got to wait a long time before I get to hear the crunch of leaves.

I've used the background challenge that Karen created for Yvonne's blog, Do More With Less. I made this card already, so I borrowed from my previous card and used another brown paper bag as one of the layers. Hero Arts & Critter Challenge are celebrating fall, Stamp Simply is celebrating leaves. The Secret Saturday Crafter is celebrating CAS this week, my kinda style.

Materials: Hero Arts friend leaf stamp, Wooden stampers leaves, PTI kraft, Versacolor bamboo ink, Versacolor canary ink, brown twine, Fiskars rotary scallop cutter, green art paper from stash, brown paper bag

Such an awesome card! I love how you've taken the grid concept but used different stamps! Love the colors, love the material. So sorry that you will be missing fall, but it sounds like you will be having lots of fun.
