The Four Seasons Challenge - Autumn Month 1

Hello Friends and Happy 1st Day of September!  Today begins a new challenge at The Four Seasons Challenge Blog and our inspiration prompt is Autumn themed. 

I recently received the Fall Foliage Layering Stencil Kit and Coordinating Die set from Pink Fresh Studio.  This is a great stencil set, even though it's named Fall Foliage, it's actually so versatile.  The stencils are easy to layer and the combinations of colors you can create are limitless.

I knew right away I wanted to create a Wreath so I proceeded to stencil and die cut several leaves in various colors.

The card measures 5.5" square and the polkadot patterned paper is from the Bo Bunny "Vintage Polkadot" 6x6 paper pad.  I've has this paper pad in my stash for a few years and I hoard this paper, I love it and it's hard for me to use it.  Do you hoard paper like I do?

I die cut a circle and stamped the sentiment, then added craft foam behind as I planned to elevate it; I needed the ground clearance to tuck all the leaves in.

I wanted an extra full wreath; hence the amount of leaves.  After getting everything adhered, I added a Baker's Twine Bow and some gold gems.  I hope you'll stop by the challenge blog and see the lovely projects my teammates have created this 1st challenge of Autumn.  I hope you'll play along too!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!


**Challenges Entered:
AYLI = fav base is square; I started papercrafting when we were stationed overseas and that was the shape everyone made so it has a special place in my heart.
