CCC #64... harvest

Hello friends!!  Wow... we have sure had some wild and wooly weather in the Western Washington over the last few days.  It rains in Washington, but not the way it has been coming down the last few days!  Hopefully it will easy off as the week progresses.  Anywhoo.... today is Tuesday and that means time for a brand new CASology challenge and continuing along with our fall theme our cue word is "harvest".   This week our guest designer is the very, very talented Gay!!   You can find all the details for this week's challenge here.

 

This week's cue word gave me a bit of trouble as I don't have a lot of harvest-type stamps and as of Saturday night I still hadn't come up with an idea.   After a little bit of a rummage through my stash I finally came up with my very simple design.  I used the PTI set Fall Elegance and a small piece of patterned paper from the PTI paper pad "Autumn Abundance".  I trimmed down a piece of kraft cardstock to 3 1/2 x 5 1/4 and then adhered a strip of the oak leaf paper from Autumn Abundance" to the kraft piece.   I added some stamping along the other side and then added the sentiment.  Three Stamping Up! candy dots were added under the sentiment to finish things off.   For additional contrast I mounted the piece on a cream card base.

Thanks for stopping by...I cannot wait to see what fun "harvest" ideas all you super talented paper crafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Judy, Meghan, Ardyth, Gillian, Maureen, Kimberly, Jen and Tracey and our guest designer, Gay!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI cream & kraft; PP:  PTI; Stamps:  PTI; Inks:  SU! Pumpkin Pie & Real Rust, Memento Rich Cocoa; SU! Candy Dots - Brights

Rosemary, what a BEAUTY this is! The fall colors are fabulous with the "kraft". AND, the candy dots are the perfect finishing touch! Well done!

At least you can craft during your "wild & wooly" weather! I so wish you could send some rain in our direction. We could sure use it.
