The Card Concept Challenge #200 - Autumn Chill

Hello my stampy friends!

I hope you are all doing well and getting to spend lots of time creating!

This time of year is when I seem to want to create the most. 

It's too chilly to be outside, so I'm happy to be in my craft room either watching football or a good movie!

Our inspiration photo at 

The Card Concept Challenge

is perfect for these kind of days!

Autumn Chill


 I was inspired by the leaves and the fall colors to created my Clean & Elegant Style card.

~Designer papers, embossing

~Clean lines


~Clean & Fresh looking

~Some colored images

~White space

Here is my card:

The pretty background paper is from a paper pad that I picked up from JoAnne's. 
I thought it was perfect for this challenge!

The leaves were created by spraying some Brutus Monroe Chroma Mist Sprays on to some water color card stock. 
I also added some splatters of gold distress paint.
Once the paper was good and dry, I die cut the leaves.
 My sentiment was heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

I hope I have inspired you to join our challenge!
