Welcome to our first challenge for the month of September at Create with Connie & Mary. I love fall but hate to see what follows quickly behind it. The colors for today's challenge remind me of a fall scenery so I opted to use the "Autumn Days Stamp Set" for my challenge card. These are the colors for the challenge this week:

I alternated all 3 ink colors on my card bottom. The sentiment is from Bring On The Cake Stamp Set:

My husband had to correct me on this little creature, he is an avid hunter.........not I! This is a Pheasant not a Partridge, excuse me for the error! I stamped him on a Clearlits Scallop Rectangle I cut out with my BigShot Machine. I hand-cut 2 leaves after I rock-n-rolled the ink on them. The embossing is from the Houndstooth Textured Impressions Folder:

I hope you will join us for the color challenge this week. I love to see new faces each week and I also enjoy seeing all of you returning stampers!
