Autumn, My Favorite Time Of Year–CTD #209


Happy hump day! Since it’s Wednesday, it’s time for the Color Throwdown Challenge! Today’s colors are brought to us by the very talented Lynn and are some of my favorite colors: Fall colors.

swatch 209

Happily, since they’re fall colors, I could use my new favorite
MFT stamp set: Die-namics Primitive Pumpkins Die & Stamp Set. I might have mentioned a time or two (or three or four) how much I LOVE this set. So, I thought I’d give it another whirl. Fall won’t be here forever, you know ;-)

This Bo Bunny paper collection, Apple Cider, is perfect for this challenge so I pulled it out and got to work. A very simply layout but with those papers I didn’t think it needed much else. Some stitching, some awesome hemp cord, a Die-namics Medium Leafy Flourish and the pumpkins made for a pretty easy card to make—and I love it.

Here’s the inside with a sentiment from Inspired by Autumn:


Here are the
Die-namics dies I used on this card:



And that’s it! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the
