Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  And this week is a fan favorite: Anything Goes!  Here is my inspiration card for you:
 The card started with this card blank that I have had in my stash for at least 15 years!  The oval was already cut into it, and since I usually use sketches, this really hasn't fit any idea I've had.  But, I am in the process (a very slow and long process) of cleaning up my craft area and decided it was time to use it.  I was thinking a Christmas card, but for some reason Fall jumped into my head and I went with it.
 I started by stamping the sentiment through the opening, directly onto the inside card base.  Then I stamped and cut out my leaves.  I wanted to add some acorns, so I created a "branch" so I could adhere them in a cluster.  The card needed just a little something so I stamped random dots all over half of the card for a little fun.  I finished the card off with a bit of scrap rafia that has been in my stash for ever!
Thanks for stopping by!  If you need any of the stamps I used, make sure you check out the 10% off your entire order code over in  my left sidebar.  And make sure you hop over to The House blog to see what the rest of the team has in store for you.
