A challenge for Autumn

This week's Double Dog Dare challenge was from Francie G. and she challenged us to make a Autumn card! No restrictions, just a card with autumn colors or images. Well, I was a bit stumped as I (gasp) don't have any fall type stamps. But, TARGET to the rescue!

We all know how hit and miss their Dollar Spot is, but when you hit the jackpot it's soooo fun! I found tons of really cute coordinating Autumn stuff. Designer paper, ribbons, die cuts, even mini punches. So I restricted myself to only 3 things -the paper, mini leaf punch and some ribbon and came up with this card. The images are SU! Autumn Harvest and I received them last year thru WishRAK. I am all out and may have to wish for some more!!
I colored the pumpkin and gord with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I tried my new Copic markers (another story), but it was a disaster, so back to the pencils until I get better!

Card Deets:
Stamps - Autumn Harvest

Paper - choc chip, saffron, pumpkin pie, mellow moss

Accessories - circle nesties, stickles (on the punched leaves), prismacolor pencils and gamsol


  1. This card is really lovely! It makes me less sad that summer is coming to an end. I do love the fall colors and you captured them nicely here.

  2. You hit the jackpot with this combo from Target! Love the softer Fall colors.

  3. Great job with this card. The paper is perfect and the pumpkins and gourds are very much a part of autumn.

  4. Its lovely Michelle. Very Thanksgiving too!
