A Free Friday

I actually had a free Friday today on my blog.  That means I get to play in a some challenges!

I started with Paper Players 217 with the colors, went with One Layer Simplicity #10, Fall Theme, and used some embossing to join in the CAS on Sunday #44.

I used an older set of Hero Arts, Real Leaves, that I purchased from Susan [OLS] about 5 years ago. Very appropriate for using for the Fall theme of the challenge.  I embossed my leaves with white embossing powder and then sponged on the colors from Paper Players.


I also did a card for the STAMPlorations October Challenge reminder [embossing and stamps], but also joined in with the Card Concept #21 Challenge, a flower photo.

I used STAMPlorations, Bloom Sketches and Happy.  I water colored my embossed flowers.  So.much.fun.!


As stated, this is also a reminder for the STAMPlorations October Monthly Challenge; embossing and stamps. Super easy, and you can use any stamps you want to!


Thanks for stopping by~
