Welcome to the OCC challenge for this week: Happy Fall, Y'all! I am enjoying the cooler temperatures - even though it hardly feels like we had summer here - and I'm also having fun pulling out my fall colors and papers. It feels good!
Anyway, the challenge is to make a fall-themed card, and here is mine. I knew I wanted to cut out my images, but I had a hard time choosing which ones to use. In the end I went with Trendy Trees. I stamped the trees with crushed curry, really rust, and chocolate chip on very vanilla cardstock, then cut them out. My DP is by October Afternoon. I sponged chocolate chip ink on the edges of the DP and cardstock panels, then mounted the trees with dimensionals.
I had the hardest time figuring out where to put the sentiment - I actually had to put this card aside for a while, which is what seems to work best for me when I get stuck. When I came back to it, the idea of the Nesties oval behind the tree panel just hit me and I love the result. The sentiment from Sincere Salutations was stamped in rust, then I added a bow of Making Memories ribbon and a mustard button from the Playground set (it looks a lot like the curry, I think!) tied with linen thread. And that's it! I had a great time with this challenge, and I hope you'll come and play along!
