Hello Friends!! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!!  We had a blast camping at Bugs Island.  The weather was gorgeous...a very crisp cool weekend!!  It was not too hot and not too cool.  No artist could ever paint something as beautiful as God's creation!! The leaves have not changed as much here yet but there are many trees with the bright Autumn colors mixed in with all the green.

Speaking of leaves and I would like to share a card with an Autumn theme.

I just could not resist joining today's Free For All (F4A138) challenge at Splitcoast which was to use the negative parts of a die cut and combine it with Thursday's WT396 Round and Round challenge and Monday's TLC 398 to add dimension!! How fun!! I so enjoyed using the negative to create a card!! It is awesome for using up scraps as well, which is what I used!!

Card Recipe:
Stamps used: Our Daily Bread Designs Pumpkin Wreath and Apple Wreath 
Spellbinders Dies: Spellbinders Foliage, Standard and Classic Circles
Embossing Folders: Provocraft Scrollwork, Soft Swirls
Accessories: May Arts Black Silk Ribbon ribbon, ZVA creative pearl flourishes

I hope this creation, has somehow inspired you.

Thanks for stopping by!! I treasure all my viewers/blogging friends and their comments.

Have a blessed Day!!!
