OCC Fall Y'All!

I'm on a roll today and catching up on some great challenges. This card is for the OCC challenge, which is to create a fall/autumn card. This one used up some scraps and a retired piece of River Rock cardstock. I cut the squares and adhered them to a piece of cardstock with a dab of adhesive in the center - then I stitched them down on the edges and cut the whole piece with a Top Note die. The RR background was stamped with a $1 leaf stamp with RR ink. The embossed leaves and sentiment were done with a KSS set called Autumn Squirrel. I stamped them, embossed them and cut them out and popped them up. The ribbon bits were tiny scraps I finally put to good use! LOL The sentiment panel was done with Nestabilities labels diecut and a SU punch.
I'm having so much fun today just making cards..........there aren't too many days like this, so I'm taking advantage of the time and just creating.
Catch ya later! :)
