There Is No Better Friend Paper Players Challenge PP607 Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC291

 September 4, 2022

It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps 

The Amazing Anne is our hostess at The Paper Players this week.  She has a very timely challenge for all of us!  "FALL FUN" is the theme this week.  There are so many possibilities with theme!

Sunday Stamps has a fabulous Fall Color Challenge this week! Have fun and we can't wait to see what you create! 

The top layer of my card is a piece of patterned paper that looks like bricks.  I added two rectangle panels of Fall leaves patterned paper.  The main image is from Honey Bee Stamps.  It is called "Acorn Sisters" Stamp Set and die.  It is now retired, but I just love this set.  I colored all the elements with Copic Markers and added white gel pen and Wink of Stella for shine!  The sentiment is from the same set.  It did take quite a bit of time to color this image, but I do think it is worth the effort.  It is perfect for this weeks challenges.
