A La Card Monkey challenge


As I don't own very many autumn themed stamps, this WAS a bit of a challenge for me which was great! This card is for the A La Card Monkey Challenge 71 - Because it is all about Autumn! Yesterday was our first day of Spring here!!

I could only think of my SU Autumn Days set so combined that with the SU colours of Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Pear Pizzazz, Early Espresso and Pool Party.

I have scored a few lines top and bottom of the background piece and added the brads and twine with the tiny tags - wording from Teeny Weeny Sentiments. The main image is raised on Dimensionals and I used some of the SU wide grosgrain Early Espresso ribbon behind it.

Hi Jean,

Thanks so much for stopping by my Blog. Of course I had to hop on over here. I love this card. For not having a lot of fall stamps, you sure knew how to use these. That focal image is fabulous and the scored lines are the perfect complement. Love it! TFS.
