Hello Fall

Hello, it's Jenny posting.  I designed this for the latest challenge at Classy Cards 'n Such.

Hope you can join in the colors of fall challenge.  I began this card by looking through my card stock.  I was so inspired by the plaids in the inspiration photo.

I found this pretty plaid paper in the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper pack.  I cut out a rectangle of the paper using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A set.  The center oval was cut out with the largest Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large.

I then matted the plaid paper onto a rectangle of green card stock which was also cut out of the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A set.  The center of the green paper was cut with the largest oval in the Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small set.

I stamped the Stacy Stamps, The Woods stamp, using Memento Brown ink and then colored it in with a Copic E31 marker.

The leaves from the Impression Obsession Small Leaf Set, were sponged with distress ink to give them a natural appearance.

I cut the Hello out of the new Impression Obsession Greetings set and also dabbed distress ink over the die cut.  I love these greetings dies, they are so versatile.

Before I put everything together, I popped the Vintage Bliss card stock up using foam dots to add dimension.  I glued the green paper to the white card base, added a bow out of ribbon from my stash and then glued Impression Obsession Small Leaf set around it.

I decided the card needed something extra, so I sponged distress ink over the white base layer and the edges of the Vintage Bliss paper to add some visual texture.

Thanks for looking and I can't wait to see what you make for this challenge!
