Papertrey Playhouse - It's Your Season Challenge

So I finally had time to play along with Kay's Challenge over at the Papertrey Playhouse!! Better late than never, and I am surely cutting it close as the next challenge goes up tomorrow (and I am the host of that challenge).

The challenge was to make a project that represents our favorite season. I know that so many people in the country are just waiting for Spring to finally arrive. It's been teasing a lot lately in many parts. But in Florida, summer never really ends, and as a northern transplant to the only state in the country that didn't have any recordable snow this past January, I long for a true fall!! You know the kind...leaves change to beautiful shades of red, yellow, and orange at the peak!! I miss four distinct seasons so much I easily could have made a winter and spring card too, but I stuck with fall!

For my card, I broke out a set I haven't really inked up yet, and it was fun to finally get it a little messy!

I used Fall Elegance and Mat Stack 1 stamps for this card, using the leaves from Fall Elegance to create my own background. I love Fresh Snow ink on Kraft!! Then I used Terracotta Tile for the frame and sentiment (which is also from Fall Elegance), also on kraft. Finished it off with two Terracotta Tile buttons on the side of the frame. I can't wait to send this to someone this fall!!

Stay tuned tomorrow morning for my Papertrey Playhouse challenge!! And my personal layout a day challenge will start here on Saturday (I'll post my layouts the day after I make them). Excited to get some pages made that had been pushed aside for so long!!

Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. LOVE this Deb! The leaf background is fabulous, and I love how the orange POPS against it!

  2. LOVE the stamped background (I'm a sucker for Fresh Snow on Kraft, too!)

  3. Looks like there are several of us in the Playhouse that really like fall most of all! Great card!
