Happy FALL

Hi everyone! I think we've had enough h.o.t. weather here in north Florida. We've had multiple days with temps over 100 degrees and I'm ready for some fall weather! ;) I'm happy to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #34 - Scheming Crafters! We're being sponsored this time by the wonderful Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet and Fred, She Said Designs! Come play with us! We want to see your project created with a specific color scheme in mind. Easy peasy! My Happy FALL card features a "fall season" color scheme with brown, red, orange, yellow and green.

My 5-step card base was created with a Silhouette cut file. I purchased cut files for the 4-step, 5-step and 6-step cards about a month ago and cut all three of them in one weekend. Such a unique design and so much fun! I chose the absolutely gorgeous Fallen Maple Leaf digi from Fred, She Said Designs. I printed six of them, colored them all, and fussy cut them with my Silhouette. These gorgeous papers in fall colors were in one of the new double-sided paper pads I just got.

I've had these green embroidered letters in my stash for years and they were not only the perfect color, but the perfect size for the steps on this card base.

I've also had these large green, red and brown chipboard letters in my stash almost as long as the green embroidered ones, so onto the card base they went! I embellished one of the letters with a fallen maple leaf image and another letter with a metal acorn charm.

I decorated the 'staircase' with a cluster of fallen maple leaves and a metal leaf charm. :)
