Happy Fall - C4C #55

Howdy, Crazy fans! It's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. This week, Joycelyn has a sketch for us:

And our sponsor for this week is Meljen's Designs. Get all the deets at the C4C blog.

I decided to go as CAS as I could with this sketch. I used more of my precious stash of Basic Grey's Indian Summer paper. I love it so much I just ordered another pad--hmmmm, I probably should have gotten two while I was at it ;-) So, I started with a Soft Suede base, added a layer of Cherry Cobbler, and then the design paper. I stitched around that and distressed the edges a bit. For the horizontal elements, I simply wrapped some twine around. Next I die cut and stamped the big maple leaf from PTI's Leaf Prints using the rock and roll method and popped it up on foam. I cut and stamped the smaller leaves from the same set, and sorta zig zagged their placement. Finally, I stamped the sentiment from 2009 Autumn Tags and cut a tag and tied it on with a button and more twine.

Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy girls...er, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C55.

Thanks so much for dropping in today!
