Good morning stampers! I have some fabulous fallish colors to show you today for Create with Connie & Mary. Are you getting ready for fall yet? Our leaves have already started turning here in Maine. I love fall but so not ready for the white stuff quite yet! Here are the colors for this week's challenge:

My Card:

My card is  quite simple to create but adding the layers of borders at the bottom really dresses it up. I think this is the first time I've used a string of the Gold Sequins in this manner. Adding a strip of Sticky Strip first then pressing the sequins down into the adhesive makes it so easy!

And I repeatedly stamped the sentiment a few times in a row along with the stamped images and adding a tiny little Baker's Twine bow to finish off my card!

Now let's talk about our Holiday Card "Create"tions. We have a wonderful line-up of designers that are going to create for you for holiday ideas and all stamp sets featured are from the Holiday Catalog debuting on August 28th. This is what you receive when you purchase a subscription:

  4. Love that you created a Fall card with the colors. It is especially pretty with the sequins, twine and die cut border.

  5. I'm not usually a fan of Clean and Simple, but this card is elegant...I think adding the border details at the bottom made this card a real eye-catcher!
