The Heart Desires Challenge #5

The Heart Desires has a fun, funky little photo inspiration this month ... check it ...


Okay.  I might be the only crafter who doesn't own a pumpkin stamp, or die ... but I'm not letting that stand in my way of participating in that challenge!  Kimberly, a member of their terrific design team, said it was okay!   

For THD's Challenge #5 ...

Distress Inks again, Neat & Tangled Maple Leaves Journaling Card, and Celebrate Die.
Altenew Halftone Smile for the perfect sentiment!
Inside:
... every Season of life!
 
Thanks for the visit ... you all give me a reason to celebrate the fun we have card making!
 
=]  Michele
 
So pleased, and honored to be chosen!

Stunning! Oh my gosh, I adore the colors on this card. That teal leaf is gorgeous and the gray background just makes everything look even more amazing. The sentiment is fabulous, too. I'm so happy to have found your blog. You've given me so much inspiration and delight. Thanks so much for sharing! :)

Who needs pumpkins when you have that lovely leaf die. It's a beautifully designed card, Michele.

I'm with Bobby, Michele ... you don't need pumpkins ... your colourful cascading leaves are beautiful! You're not the only one without p-stamps ... I don't have any either (don't realy 'do' halloween)! Hugs, Anita :)

Hi, I love that journaling card. Thought long and hard whether to buy it, and didn't! Seeing your beautiful creation makes me sorry! The colors of your leaves are truly amazing, Michelle.
