Bloggers Challenge Happy Fall

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday, I hope you've been having a great week!  I've been enjoying this bit of cooler weather we've been having, and it's perfect for this weeks BC Challenge Theme; to create something Fall related. 

I could have went in a lot of different directions with the Fall Theme: Apples, Pumpkins, Sunflowers, but decided to use the beautiful Mums from Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Harvest Set, aren't they pretty!


Pulling colors from the Cloud 9 Papers, I stamped the Bushel Basket and Mums on White card stock.  For the background panel, I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate on Saffron card stock, then embossed using the Woodgrain Texture Fades Folder.  Color was added using the Cuttlebug Highlights Technique.

Details:
Stamps - Kitchen Sink Stamps
Ink - SU Rose Red, Caramel, Artichoke, Green Galore, So Saffron, Summer Sun, Chocolate
Card Stock - White, So Saffron, Chocolate, Pumpkin
Other - Big Shot, Texture Fades Folder, 1/4" Circle Punch, Cloud 9 Paper

Color Recipe:
Basket - #3 Chocolate, #2 Caramel, #1 Caramel stamp off, #4 Caramel
Mums - #1 Summer Sun, #2 Green Galore, #3 Artichoke, #4 Saffron, #5 Rose Red

Have a great weekend!
