Stampin'B Challenge -- Fall

Fall has arrived -- even in Florida! So the Stampin' B's were asked by our hostess, Faith, to make a fall card.

I don't often make one layer cards, but I try to do one every once in a while. Today was the day. After embossing down the side with a Cuttlebug border folder, I sponged the oval using a template I had made with an oval Nestabilities die. Then I stamped the tree from a brand-new Mark's Finest Papers' set called A Walk in the Woods, which will be released next week. I added some Autumn Flower Soft on both the tree and on the ground. The large leaf is a button, from which I snipped the shank on the back so that it would lie flat.
