I'm just under the wire for the One Layer Wednesday challenge. Last week it was hosted by Karen of the blog Snippets. She challenged us to use MASKING on a card. This is what I came up with....
I cut a mask out of a sticky note (the lines really help to cut straight) and laid it on the card front, then inked up my Woodgrain Background stamp with Crumb Cake, stamped off once and stamped.
I used a little thumping on the leaves and added some red "berries".
We have 2 dogwood trees in our back yard that are decked out with lots of red berries as well as colorful leaves. I've been enjoying all that color. Our back windows are filled with that beauty!
When I was trying to think of what to do for this challenge, I saw this card by Polly P. aka know as peeps321 at SCS. She's the Queen for the Day this week. When I saw her card the idea just came together. Thanks Polly for the inspiration. I hope you enjoy your week as Queen!
And The Friday Mashup challenge is
So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
- Make a "Fall Leaves" themed project.
- Or Make a project with "Twine".
- Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Fall Leaves Themed project using Twine".
I didn't add any twine, but I think it would look really good. Maybe I'll go add some. Imagine it with Early Espresso Baker's Twine. Yep, I think that would work.
I'll post this on Susan's sidebar for her Gratitude Campaign. I think it's a wonderful idea to show our gratitude to people who make a difference in our lives.

I'm going to have to toot my horn a little. I'm so excited! When I went to check out the colors at colourQ this week, I saw that my Happy Autumn card was the winner. I've been a Courtier several times, but never the Queen. Those colors were fantastic! The same card was a Favorite at SCS last week too. It makes me happy to know that this card was enjoyed that much.
Thanks for stopping by. And a special thanks for your vote of confidence.
