Blogger's Challenge #125 Happy Fall Y'all!


Our challenge for this week was to create a fall card with the theme, Happy Fall Y'all! I brought out a stamp set from the dormant list (available to purchase but not shown in any catalog) called Branch Out. I just had to have this set last year and I'm so glad I got it!

I stamped the tree in Chocolate Chip on Naturals Ivory cardstock. Then using the leaf stamp from the set, I used Old Olive, Ruby Red, Really Rust, More Mustard and Pumpkin Pie to add the fall leaves on the trees and the ground.

I saw this layout on a recent blog but didn't keep who had done the layout originally so please let me know if you do!!! I used More Mustard, Ruby Red and Pumpkin Pie strips of cardstock to layer the border on the side. Adds lots of texture!

Please make your own fall card today and check out what the other BC members "fell" for this week!

Gorgeous card. I love the rows of torn paper.
(I know the card you are talking about as I have a copy of it but there is no watermark on the card so I don't know where I found it either.)
