STCF#20

I had time to do another challenge card today since it was a rainy dreary day. This card is for the MFP Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #20 to use Autumn colors. All the textured papers are from a pad by the paper company that I've had forever. I just pulled out some of the autumn colors and started cutting away. I embossed the 3 vertical panels with a CB leafy branch ef, and the bottom orange panel with the SU square lattice ef. The image and sentiment are from a MFP set called Thankful Mums and Pumpkins that I won! (lucky me!) The pumpkins were stamped on wc paper, colored with tombows, and then clear embossed before cutting. The leaves and ferns were done with MS punches, and I added some veins to the leaves with a stencil embossing tool.
Autumn is my favorite time of the year and it's a welcome change after the HOT summer we had! Have a great week everyone!
