OCC Inspiration Challenge!!!

Happy Saturday!!!

Oh.... I'm so thrilled you liked the photos of my girls yesterday!!! I'm indeed a proud mommy!!!

Starting today we have a new challenge host over at the OCC Blog....it's Jennifer Meyer!!! Jennifer is challenging us to create a card/project from this *inspiration photo*......

I took my inspiration from the *leaves*.......



















When I saw the IC photo.....I was planning and searching for a *pumpkin* stamp...but believe it or not I don't have one *single* pumpkin stamp - crazy huh??? But then I came a cross this beautiful *Autumn Meadows* DP from SU and figured it would work perfectly for a *Fold Card* :)!!!
Yeah.... you guessed it right - I had to make one - he,he,he!!!

For the inside of my card I used the wonderful *Blessings* Set from SU. I matched the inside leaves with the DP colors - More Mustard, Chocolate Chip and Really Rust. For the *tag* I used Taken with Teal, More Mustard and Chocolate Chip.

The *tag* was punched out with a Large Marvy Uchida Punch. To dress it up I added Copper Hardware and the yummy Chocolate Satin Ribbon.

To finish the card off I added the Buttons!!!

Hope you have time to play along with us??? Make sure to stop by the OCC Blog to see all the awesome Samples!!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Before I forget.......I'm selling a whole bunch of SU Stamps.....I'm running out of storage space and they need a good new home......I should have a list ready for you tomorrow!!! Come back and check it out!!!

~Supply List~

All items except the *tag punch* are from SU.
