Nature Gives To Every Season-PP #317

October 16, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The multi-talented Nance is our hostess this week!  She is challenging us to create a Clean and Simple style project using leaves.   Fall has finally arrived in GA.  I hope you are experiencing cooler days wherever you live! 

My card is created on a white card base.  The top layer is stamped with a frame from Rubbernecker Stamps- Freehand Border using Momento Cocoa ink.  The leaves are from Stampin' UP! Vintage Leaves set.   The sentiment is from Verve Stamps.  Clean and Simple is hard for me, but I love the way this turned out.  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.

  8. Hi Claire! How I wish I was back In GA for the fall again...last year we enjoyed it so much. I would love a trip to the apple orchards and some fresh apple hand pies! YUM!
