Let's Craft and Create Challenge #134

Hey everyone! I'm so excited to share that I have joined the Design Team for Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog!  This month's challenge just went live today, and you should see all the lovely inspiration projects from the team! After checking them out, feel free to join in by adding your own project links to the bottom of the post! Can't wait to see what you come up with! 

This month's theme is Anything Goes with the Optional theme of Mothers/Mother's Day. Click HERE to see the challenge post.

My Mom's birthday is in October, so whenever I see fall colours I think of her! Autumn is also my favourite time of year, so it was fun to make a special card for my mom in these colours. 

The image I had stamped from ages ago - to be honest I don't even remember where the stamp comes from or even if it was rubber, wood-mounted, or anything! I coloured it with Crayola pencils and then cut around the edges with a nice sharp pair of scissors. 

The flower is cut using 4 different sized dies and 4 different colours of cardstock that I selected to match the coloured flowers. The largest petals are Pumpkin Pie, then Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze, and Early Espresso - all from Stampin' Up! The card base is Old Olive with an Early Espresso layer between it and the white. Add a length of ribbon from my stash, pop the image up on some foam dot dimensionals from SU! and glue on the flower! And I almost forgot to mention the stamp! It's a retired SU! set called Delightful Dozen. 

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the challenge!
