SSIC Falling for you

With fall arriving in the Northern Hemisphere, we have so much to be inspired by.  This week's hostess for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge is one of our founding members and leader Kris, who has chosen this week's scripture:

 "So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up." Galatians 6:9

Kris has challenges us to make a Harvest card or Fall/Autumn 

I have chosen to use the autumn palette, the softer shades of browns and greens with a gentle touch of pink peeking through. 
I have used an image from Crafty Secrets, along with the Spellbinders Les Papillions Shapeabilities and the negative Die from the A2-Polka Dots Nestabilities® as my border (on the right hand edge of the card).  All Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.  The Want2Scrap bling is designed by the amazingly talented Nina of NinaB Designs.

This card is for the following challenges:
ATCs & Cards With Attitude - Anything Goes/buttons and bows
Crafty Ann'sSketch* and/or Autumnal colour scheme
Fun with Shapes & More - must include die cut/punch – include an Animal
Inspire Me FridaysAlways Anything Goes

    Your card is beautiful. The bling is in all the right places and the colors you used match the vintage sepia image.
    At Simply Create Too, we've moved on from Vingage/So Old, but our challenge for the next two weeks is "Anything Goes", so your beautiful card still fits in.
    Thanks for playing along with us and join us again soon.
