Enjoy the Simple Things

Hello fellow crafters, I have a card to share with you all today.
For my card today, I used the BINGO theme from House Mouse Challenge. I used the line right in the middle (Orange, Yellow, and Green) option. These three colors remind me of fall, and I love fall! The aroma of pumpkin, cooler weather, the holidays, just love what fall brings along. I recently purchased this stamp at Scrapbooking Made Simple, a local scrapbooking store (they also have an online store option) and I really wanted to use it, so I thought this challenge would be a perfect time to do so.

The colorful leaf paper is from the DCWV Amber Autumn card stock stack. I used one of my Nestabilities dies to cut out a piece of orange card stock. The name of the House Mouse stamp that I used, is called "Fence Falling."


The sentiment is from My Creative Time, the cute tiny green, orange, and yellow leaves are from Scrapbooking Made Simple's Bountiful Harvest Collection. The yellow flower is from Recollections, the green leaves on the flower were cut out using the die from Piles of Smiles.

For he inside of the card I used some more of those tiny cute leaves from the Bountiful Harvest Collection stamp and die set from Scrapbooking Made Simple. The inside sentiment is from Just Simply Live stamp set. 

To color the stamped image I used my Spectrum Noir color pencils. The colors I used are, 021, 018, 044, 011, 086, 057, 108, 059, 103, 094, 034, 104, 008, 007, and 036. 

I had lots of fun coloring and making this card.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving me some bloody love:) 

Peace, Love, & Crafting Hugs!
