New Challenge Month at The Paper Funday

Hi Crafty Friends!  Today begins a new challenge at The Paper Funday Challenges and it's Always Anything Goes with an Optional Twist.  The Twist this month is Autumn/Fall and our generous sponsors for the month are Jan's Digi Stamps and Colour of Love.

For my design team project, I've used the Emmi Lou Boo's Autumn Leaves image by Colour of Love.

This is an adorable image and I had a great time creating this card.  I've colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, used papers from the Echo Park "Celebrate Autumn" 6x6 paper pad and a sentiment from Cardz TV.

I love Autumn, it's my favorite time of year and the funny bit is - we don't have Autumn in Florida.  During my husband's military career, we lived in areas of the country as well as overseas that did have 4 seasons.  The colors of Autumn are always so rich and vibrant.  My kids loved hayrides, apple orchards, trick or treating, candied apples and bon lots of great memories associated with this time of year.

Thanks for visiting today and I hope to see you at the Paper Funday Challenges this month!  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
