SSBC #19- Autumn!!

Happy Wednesday Morning!! I have finally given in to the fall thing!! Before we get down to business, I want to Welome Karen Amidon- our newest DT member!!! WELCOME KAREN!!

The next installment of the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog!! This time we're going for a Tri-Shutter card. Now, that may sound intimidating but, really it's quick and easy. Harder to photo than make, LOL!! Here's the link to a tutorial on SCS.

I decided to play with the new Pumpkins & Flowers stamp- stamped on crumbcake and colored with copics. Added some Maple and Oak leaves on four panels along with this fabulous sentiment- Autumn is a Second Spring.

Hope you find time to join us, and...

The rules are simple... play along using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your submission and link it below. You don't have to have a blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery.

It speaks autumn to me! Love your background also! I really like how you mirrored the Pumpkin and Flowers stamp on the outside panels. Great idea on stamping the Maple and Oak leaves too. Like it! :)

Wow Vickie! I LOVE this card! I esp. love how you colored just come elements of the pumpkin image. And your use of multiple patterns in the tiny alcoves of the shutters makes everything pop. Great job!

You did so many wonderful things here Vickie - the mix of pattern papers, the inked leaves in different colors, and the great images! Really spectacular!
