Happpy Fall! Going Grey Challenge with Fred She Said

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! I am so glad it is Tuesday because that means it is time for another challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week we are celebrating the season. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. The weather is cooling down and the colors here in New England are simply gorgeous. I love seeing all the leaves turning and everyone decorating with mums, pumpkins, scarecrows, and corn stalks tied with big Fall bows. So Going Grey's Challenge this week is AUTUMN.

We also have a fabulous sponsor this week, Fred She Said Digital Stamps

I used two of these wonderful images to create my card. I fell in love with wheelbarrow a while ago and then when I saw the pumpkins and sunflower arrangement I knew they would go great together. To make the flowers in the wheelbarrow look fallish I colored them then put yellow, purple, red and Autumn mix Flower Soft on them. I finished it off with punched out leaves from fall DP CS that I brushed with Stickles and left them popping out of the Flowers Soft. It is hard to see in the pic but this card SPARKLES so much. All the leaves have orange Stickles, the sunflower centers are also Stickled. One of the panels of DP are glittered dots and the flower buttons are glitter also.

Tracy has graciously given each of the DTs a Fall image to use as inspiration for you this week. The fantastic prize being offered this week from Fred She Said's Digital Store . So don't you want to come play with us this week! The design team as really done a fantastic job on their creations so be sure to stop by their blogs.
