H2H Challenge - Celebrating Fall

Merry Monday Morning to you all!

Since it is Monday, it is time once again for my contribution to the H2H Challenge blog. This week we have a sketch:

Although it was still 107 degrees this weekend...I cranked up the air conditioner, lit an Autumn Wreath Yankee Candle and wished for actual signs of Fall and cooler weather. (Crazy thinking since we have predictions of triple digit weather all next week! UGH!!) But I did my best to create my enviroment to inspire this beautiful fall card created with our new Oliva Paper Pack.

I made a slight modification to the sketch by running it vertical instead of horizontal...and oh-so-delighted with the results!!

The Fall embelishement was created with a resist technique. I first stamped the celebrate word in Cocoa on Colonial White Cardstock, the stamped the FALL letters with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, last I sponged Barn Red ink and destressed the edge with more Cocoa Ink. Love it! Love it! Love it!!

So now it’s your turn! Create a card inspired by the sketch and then hop on over to the H2H Challenge blog and share your creation by Sunday night at 10pm for your chance to be chosen as the Fab Friday Five!!
