{DT Project Tammy's Scrapin Corner: Challenge #27}

This week our theme for Challenge #27 at Tammy's Scrapin Corner is Fall Inspiration.  In South Africa we refer to Fall as Autumn.  I used a QKR digi image called Raking LeavesYou can find it here.   

Another centre step card design.  I coloured her with H2O's and dry chalks.  The leaves were stamped with a rubber stamp from my stash and was fussy cut.  The picket fence was drawn with a template and cut out.

So hop on over to Tammy's Scrapin Corner and link your Fall Inspiration creation to Challenge #27.

  24. This is gorgeous Desire I just love everything about it. I must find a template on how to do a step card they look fab when you do them I'm sure any efforts by me wouldn't be anywhere near yours but I'd love to have a go

  25. This is SUCH a sweet card! I love all the dimension and layers and details, but it almost looks like there are extra colours in your creation that do not qualify for the Dynamic Duo's challenge.
    I'm glad to have seen your card - even the way you used the fence die is inspiring.
    Cheers, Karen
