Sure feels like FALL!

Hello Friends!
Other than sharing creations for the design teams I am on, I haven't had much time to create cards due to a BIG project I've been busy with but that all changes today!!  I'm happy to report that the 400 Candy Boxes I've been commissioned to make were completed yesterday!


WHEW!!!  LOL

So now, let's have some fun and create a card that satisfies a few current challenges.


Two challenges I had in mind when creating today's card are:
Addicted to CAS where the theme is Foliage

and Addicted to Stamps where the theme is Autumn Colours


To create the focus on my card I sponged various fall colored inks to the inside of a Tutti Designs Circle Die.  Next I stamped my 'very old' Inkadinkado maple leaf stamp in a 'falling' design then lastly my sentiment.  This stamp is from a Very Very old Gina K stamp set (circa 2007) called Happy Harvest.


Other challenges to share in:

Paper Craft Crew Challenge #312 - Inspiration Photo


Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you've enjoy my creation.
As always . . .

Wow, I know you are pleased to have that candy box project behind you! Now it is time to look forward! I love your card...definitely reminds me of Fall. I have been busy trying to get things ready for cold weather and little by little it is getting done. Now leaves are falling and I will need to mulch with my mower but at least I don't have to rake! Have a great rest of the week!

What a pretty Fall card, Darlene! You make CAS look easy (when it's not)! Love the shadows on a leaves! It gives the card depth perfectly. Thank you so much for playing with Retro Rubber and hope you will join us again soon.

You finished! Yay!!! I hope you don't have to ship them somewhere. Darlene, you're getting better and better at CAS. This is perfection! I swear the moon looked very similar to this last night. Hanging very big and low when we went out for our walk. We were on a hill and it was as though we were looking down at it. Weird illusion. Love those Inkadinkado leaves!

What a beautiful Fall friendship card. It is awesome with those wonderful colors. And, I am feeling so tired even looking at those 400 boxes you made. They are so gorgeous as well. You need a break for sure after all that work.
