A CHALLENGE???  I wonder what that can be - oh that's right I heard someone mention that the other day.  It means you have to go with some guidelines.

Well over at  Joan's Gardens   she is having a fall challenge and you need to include the following on your card:

Leaves on your card                                    CK
Fall Colors                                                    CK
Tree and/or bird (think a branch will do)       CK
You must use a product sold at  Joan's Gardens. Well that's not a problem because I like her shop and I find lots to buy there.                           CK

Now I think I can do this:

With all the beautiful fall weather we have been having this week it won't be hard to put this card together.  I started to with 2 shades  of Bazzil CS and then a pin dot Kraft CS that I stamped with background design from JustRite using TH Peeled Paint. I then stamped Penny Black fall stamps onto Basic Grey DP and fussy cut them out and then distressed with TH Pumice Stone. The twigs are a Memory Box die. The orange flourish is MFT as are the Curly Q's. These were all distressed and then I used the flower tool to break down the fibers in the paper to shape and curl up the Curly Q's.  The sentiment is from JustRite. The ribbon is from my stash.

All of the above products (except the DP) can be purchased at

This has been fun and hope you have enjoyed my fall card.  See you soon.

Hugs until then,
