Hello and welcome to the September/October Words 2 Craft By word challenge. Your inspiration this month is Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall-F. Scott Fitzgerald. Anyone who knows me knows it's no secret that autumn is my favorite time of the year. I love the cool, crisp air, the foliage, the warmer clothing...and my birthday is in the fall. So, I was excited to create a card that celebrates my favorite season! To start I layered a piece of chocolate chip cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my standard A2 white card base. I then layered a piece of the Autumn Splendor patterned paper from Best Creation Inc on top. I then stamped the gorgeous tree image from the Hero Arts Color Layering Fall Trees stamp set onto some white cardstock from Staples using Memento dew drop inks in fall colors. For the ground I used one of the images from the Paper Smooches Positive Strokes stamp set and more Memento inks. I then stamped the sentiment from the Close To My Heart Always Grateful Seasons & Nature stamp set and die cut the image using a stitched edge rectangle die from Gina Marie Designs. I matted the panel onto more Stampin' UP chocolate chip cardstock and popped it up off of the card using fun foam from Hobby Lobby. I added some coordinating 3mm sequins from The Ton onto the tree image to mix in with the leaves to finish up my pretty autumn card. I can't wait to see how this month's quote inspires the rest of you!

What pretty little tree! I like all of the dots and the sequins. This is a wonderful autumn card Celeste!
Love the stamped tree. Nice choice of colors! What a creative way to use the PS stamp! I always look at the Ton blog. Have you ordered any other products from them other than sequins?-Maria Giselle
No Maria, just sequins
Ooooooh, Celeste.... There's so much to love here. For starters there's that pretty dp, and then there's that gorgeous sequin-adorned tree. But, the topper for me was using the PS brush stroke for the ground. Brilliant! Why don't I ever think of these things?!
Your beautiful Hero Arts tree is stunning, Celeste. I love the colors you have used and your sequin accents are perfect.
Love your color choices, and the sequins are the perfect finishing touch! Thank for designing for Words 2 Craft By!!
