This week our CCEE challenge hostess, Brenda, is getting into fall -- her challenge: Fall Colors and a Punched Border. Nothing says fall colors like leaves, so I looked through my patterned paper and found a sheet of HOTP Fall Leaves that was just what I wanted for my background.
I cut my cream-colored cardstock to 5 1/4" wide and then used the Martha Stewart leaf border punch on one side, saving the punched-out leaves to use later. I stamped and colored the pumpin; then stamped the image. Using some Tim Holtz Distress inks, I colored the punched-out leaves various fall colors. I wanted the leaves to fall through the sentiment; so, after I colored them, I stamped the sentiment again on a piece of scrap paper -- with the yellow one getting part of the stamping. Both the pumpkin and the image are from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company, in a set called Autumn Splendor.
I hope you check out the rest of the cards on the CCEE Blog; and, if you'd like to play along, link your card at the bottom of the post using Mr. Linky.
