Inspiration Challenge at Critter Sketch

The challenge this week at Critter Sketch is to create a card after being inspired by this beautiful fall scene. Our sponsor is Stamp and Create and you can get all the details on the challenge and see the other dt cards at the Critter Sketch blog.

I used the colors and leaves from the inspiration picture to start designing this card. I punched the borders with an ek success leaf punch and placed orange and gold paper behind the punched leaves. The tree stamp (Inkadinkado) was stamped in black and cut out with a nestie circle and layered with a scalloped nestie circle. I masked a moon circle and sponged with oranges and tans. Then I sponged the moon in gold. I stamped the leaves and acorns (TPC Studio), colored and raised with mounting tape to hold up the easel front. The sentiment is also from TPC Studio and I added some extra punched leaves to complete the card.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Digistamps 4 Joy to use fall colors.

Stamping smiles, Karen
