{Perfect Fall Day}

Staying inside on a cool Rainy Day is perfect for card-making! Today is one of those days so I thought I would play along with this weeks Etsy Inspired Challenge. The Etsy shop being featured this week is "Capturing Creativity". This is the card I chose from the shop as my inspiration:


Since I still had it on my desk from my last card I used the SU set "Season of Friendship" to stamp the leaves and tree. I stamped the leaves in two colors, Wild Wasabi, and Kiwi Kiss and added threaded button "apples" to the tree. The fence was made cutting strips of Choco Chip cardstock that I ran through my Cuttlebug, and then I trimmed the corners using the ticket corner punch. The sentiment is from the PTI "Everyday Button Bits" set.  I loved playing along with this challenge, and I hope you get a chance to play along to! Thank you for visiting my blog today!
