Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week is a Designer's Choice Challenge and Laurie has picked "Falling For You".  You can make a card with leaves or a fall/autumn card.  This card is completely one-layer.  I used my mini MISTI and selective stamping to stamp the leaf/pinecone image in the different fall colors.  Then I masked along the top and bottom of the image and stamped the postcard stamp.  Then I masked a thing strip along both the top and bottom and sponged on some dark brown ink to create a "mat" for the image.
 I used the "accessory" sentiments from the "Thanks" cling set on the outside and used the main sentiment on the inside for a little something different.
I hope you will play along with us this week (actually, you now have all month to play along with us), I can't wait to see what you come up with.  And if you NEED any of the stamps I used today, there is a 10% off your ENTIRE order coupon in my left sidebar.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Foliage Positive", "Postcard", "Thanks Cling Set" and "Maple Leaf Sil."

Your inside is as special as your outside! And what a genius idea to use the vertical stamp this way! Pure genius, and beautiful too!

I love that you used the pinecone with the leaves in your design, Heather. I never would have thought of that but what a great addition it makes to the feel of the card. I suspected (when I saw the card in the lineup) that you had used the bigger word inside the card, but when I saw it, it blew me away...that leaf....perfect!

Your strip of colorful leaves is beautiful, Heather, and using the larger sentiment with a leaf on the inside was so innovative. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to CAS.
