Autumn Birthday for Card Come and Get It Challenges

Today’s card I created for the Come and Get It Challenges. This was a challenge to think about autumn when it is 36 Degrees Celsius on my deck. I have been hiding in my cool craft room all day because I do not like this extreme heat.

To create the autumn coloured background I played around with various dye inks and then stamped the paper with some fall leaf stamps I have my collection of stamps.

I punched out a maple leaf and stamped it with “Happy Birthday” several times and “Life is Good”. Both sentiment stamps are by A Muse Artstamps. To finish the card I added a yellow and brown ribbon.

Well I am heading back to my craft room where it is cool and hopefully I can finish off some of my projects.
