Stampin'B Challenge #74

Brenda (Benzi) is the hostess for this week's Stampin'B's DT Blog challenge, and she wanted us to use a charm somewhere on our card this week.



I rarely do one-layer cards, so this week’s card is something different for me. It is also a sneak peek at new set (Autumn Fun) from Mark’s Finest Papers that will be released next week. I stamped the leaf in Palette Burnt Umber, clear-embossed it, and then added the sentiment in orange. Even after I added the ribbon and charm, it looked a little bare, so I pierced around the edges.

As much as I do not want to think about fall yet, your card is wonderful in those great fall colors and love the leaf.
