Okie-dokie -- This time around, I'm challenging you to pull out those FALL COLORS and create whatever your heart desires!! I recently saw this yummy CAKE at my local Giant Eagle grocery store... It sure put ME in the mood to use FALL colors:
Onto the inspiration...

To finish off the "inspiration," I created a "Happy Fall" card...
I started with a 5.5"x4.25" of gold cardstock for the base. I embossed a 5.25"x4" piece of spiced cider cardstock with the Pumpkins Cuttlebug embossing folder, added a burgundy ribbon and bow, some leaf punchies, some fall-themed stick pins, a few gold Creative Charms adhesive gems, and a hand cut, hand-lettered tag that says "happy fall..."
It's another rainy day here, so I apologize for the odd lighting in my photos... I'm thankful for the rain since it's keeping everything extra green and lush... Plus, any rain that we get here is rain they aren't getting in Eastern Pa and New York, where many are experiencing flooding...
Okay!! It's YOUR turn!! Show us your take on the challenge and create a card, layout, or 3D project using FALL COLORS!! The challenge is open until Thursday, September 22nd at 11:59pm EST. You are welcome to link up as many NEW creations as you like as long as you follow the theme AND include a link to www.lovetocrop.com so that others may play along... I also respectfully request that you do not "backlink" when entering the challenge (linking a project that was posted previous to the challenge date). Thank you!! You will need to enter your actual post link (not a link to your entire blog). To do this, after clicking "Publish" on your post, click on "View Post" and copy and paste the address from your browser address bar into the Linky tool. If you have questions on how to do this, please feel free to leave a comment with your email address, and I'll be happy to help.
Now be sure to pop on over and visit my WONDERFUL Guest Designers for a chance at a little goodie from me!! One random comment will be chosen (so be sure YOURS says, "I'm visiting from Love To Crop!")... Clicking on each name will take you to their projects!! :)
