Project 273: Double challenge autumnal thanks


I've dipped in and out of challenges this second half of the year, primarily out of having too many fun new things and wanting to play with them free of the stress of challenges!


However, I saw two challenges this week that really caught my eye: the theme of Autumnal Thanks at Paper Players and the sketch at Retro Rubber. 



The leaf pattern is made using Inkadoo Fossil Leaf stamps in different inks and the stamp set is one  I've had for about a year and a half  and revisit again and again. So lovely. The greeting is a really lovely Thank You from a set Claire gave me about two years ago.

The  paper is from American Crafts and it's this lovely deep orange, kind of hard to use but perfect for an autumnal challenge. The brown candies are a favorite, it was almost indulgent to use 3 in a single card! I love how naturally everything came together, this was a case of less is more and I'm glad I kept it straightforward as it keeps all of the elements well showcased.
