Inspired by Fall!

Hello! First, I'd like to thank everyone who has left me comments over the past few days! I love to read your kind works. You keep me inspired :)

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the latest challenge posted at StampNation, to be inspired by Fall. That leaves the playing field wide open, right?! I love Fall, the foliage mostly and the overall feeling of the season as we prepare to be thankful for our blessings. So, that is the direction I chose to go in.

I used the Day of Gratitude stamp set to make a CAS (almost OL) card. I started by stamping the largest image in Crumb Cake on my Very Vanilla card base. Then I stamped two leaf images, one in Soft Suede and the other in Pumpkin Pie (even the names sound like Thanksgiving :) on a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock. I trimmed them out and adhered them to the card. I added a 1/2 inch strip of Soft Suede cardstock, as well as a button, to the left side of the card to create better balance and flow! Lastly, I stamped my "Happy Thanksgiving" from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set in Soft Suede ink.

I'd love if you played along with us! This challenge runs until Oct. 31st and one randomly chosen participant will win a stamp set...check out StampNation to find out more!!! This is a perfect time to join because tomorrow starts the StampNation Halloween Party!!! If it's anything like the Holiday Mini Virtual Open House, we are in for a treat. Check this out...
