♥ Simon Says...Autumn Leaves ♥

Happy Wednesday! It's time for another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This time we want to see leaves on your cards in celebration of Autumn! Such a lovely time of year! Cooler temps...beautiful colors in the trees...the smell of apple cider and cinnamon. Love it!!


For my card, I used some sentiments from one of the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive stamp sets by Kelly Purkey simply called "Autumn". I filled a Simple Stories Harvest Lane Memorabilia Pocket with some leaves using the Memory Box Maple Leaf Die. All of the papers are from the Simple Stories Harvest Lane 6x6 Paper Pad.


I made my own decorative buttons using some buttons from the Autumn Leaves Clear Bag O' Buttons and some of the Harvest Lane papers. I punched out some 1/2" circles and then sprayed the punched circles (patterned side) with some Spray Adhesive that dries clear. Then add your button over the top of the punched circle. Punch out holes using a Paper Piercer or needle. There you have your own decorative buttons!


And don't forget, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!





Enjoy your Autumn!!
