It's Fall Y'all!!

Happy Tuesday Crafters! Loving the Fall weather in Colorado this week. Especially now since I have the week off. You know where you can find me! Today's post is a card for the Whimsidoodles October challenge called, It's Fall Y'all!

I created this card using an adorable free Digi stamp from Whimsidoodles. It is an A2 size card made using Recollections paper from Michaels. I colored the image using my Copics. I used a Nestibilities label die for the background base, An embossing folder by PC for the card edge, I cut some leaves from the Artiste Cricut cartridge, and some green Stickles.
For the texture on the leaves, I crinckled them up and then inked them with some fall color inks I have by Memento. Some of the leaves are popped up on foam adheasive squares from my stash
The last detail on the card is faux stitching. I used a gold Sakura pen and there you have it! I made this card for my Awesome Hubby, who supports me 100% in all my crafting endeavors.
I thank you for stopping by to have a look, and best wishes for a great week!
Don't forget to go by and join in on the fun challenge HERE!!
