Four Seasons Challenge - Anything Goes Fall

 Hello everyone.  Welcome to my blog.

Today I'm participating in a (new to me) challenge blog:
FOUR SEASONS - for their ANYTHING GOES - FALL challenge.

They include an mood board for you to use for inspiration:

Fall is one of my two favorite seasons (spring being the other one). 

For my card I wanted to used warm colors and fall leaves.  Plus I couldn't resist using my squirrel stamp again!

Here is the card that I created for the challenge:

I started with a card base: Basic Black
Next I added a layer of Pumpkin Pie along with 2 patterns of designer paper (Carta Bella - Welcome Autumn series) Those leaves are just so pretty on that paper.  

Next I stamped my sentiment (which took me forever to locate in my stamp drawers) - With Memento Tuxedo Ink - The sentiment is one I've had forever and is from, Hero Arts.

I cut a circle of More Mustard*retired SU card stock and added 3 small gold colored gems.

I stamped my squirrel (Nuts About Squirrels - SU) with Memento Tuxedo black ink, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Crumb Cake inks and fussy cut it out.  I mounted the squirrel over the circle with foam tape.

Hope you have enjoyed your visit & have a great day.
