Card Concept Challenge #22

Hello Blogger Friends!!! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since our last Card Concept challenge. October is ready to bite the dust and we will be saying hello to November in a few days.

This time around on Card Concept we have a theme for you to try. We are titling it "thank-fall". Here is an inspiration photo to help in creating your card.

As part of the Wild Card Team I was able to select the style I wanted to create my card. I am calling this one a freestyle collage. I picked up on the fall elements to create my card. Since I didn't have a wheelbarrow image or die, I focused on the pumpkins, cornstalk, leaves and background.

For my background, I used the Stampin-Up "Hardwood" stamp. It gave my card the rustic look I was after. From there, I used dies to cut the cornstalk, pumpkins, acorns and leaves. To color my leaves I used some distress inks.

The "Thanksgiving" word is part of the stamp from Stampabilities. I die cut the "blessings" word with a die from Simon Says Stamp. That's my sample for this challenge.

Hope you can play along with our fun Card Concept challenge this time. The rules are fairly simple. You have  different card styles to choose from to help you create. The styles are defined here,  There are lots of samples from the rest of the DT, and you have the inspiration photo. All that's needed is your card!! 

Until next time........God bless.
