PCCCS165 -- Hello Fall

It's time for another Paper Craft Crew Challenge and this week's sketch made me think of Fall.  I guess the four squares reminded me of a window and these days Fall is what I see through my windows.

PCCCS 161-204-002

Yes, I have the window framelit die and could have used that to complete the sketch but, instead, I chose to create the four squares and put together my little fall scene that way.  For my image, I used the beautiful Sheltering Tree stamp set.  I love that the canopy of leaves is separate from the tree trunk and branches because I was able to go wild with my Stampin' Markers and used different colours here and there to create the patchwork colours I see everywhere.  Not only was that such fun, but also the results were stunning.

For the little embellishments at the top right of the sketch, I chose to use the acorns from the For All Things stamp set.  Cut apart and coloured, they were a perfect addition.  For the bottom left, I decided to use one of the leaves from the Vintage Leaves stamp set and cut that out using its matching framelit.  The wrapped twine under the leaf?  That is one long string carefully pulled from a length of Burlap Ribbon.  I don't do things the easy way.  The sentiment is perfect and is also from the For All Things set.

I hope you'll come over to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge and check out the remaining Design Team cards.

I've also entered my card into the {PIN}spirational Challenge this week.

This also seemed like the perfect card for the Male Room challenge since it celebrates Fall.
