My Papertake Weekly Special Guest DT challenge card.

Hello All!
I am very excited!
I was asked to join the girls over @ Papertake Weekly Challenge blog as their special Guest Designer for a month!
This is the first card I did for their challenges, one of which starts today, and is "Autumn Skies" theme.
Use autumn colors...gold, reds, browns etc.

I used the digi stamp that I illustrated for Clear Dollar Stamps called "Autumn Blessings" to create this card.
It is so fun and easy to color, I find myself using it often!
One of the many awesome things about digis is you can get them instantly! You would still have tons of time to whip up some Thanksgiving place cards or napkin rings and wow your guests!
See my napkin ring sample HERE.

You can download the set instantly for just $2.50 by clicking the picture below. :)
I used Moss Swirls, one of my all time favorite ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

BTW...If you have not signed up for my birthday blog candy, sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts, CLICK HERE to go to that post. Candy entries close at midnight Central Time on Nov. 17th...my birthday!  ;)

I hope you will head on over to Papertake Weekly and have a peek at the fabulous projects the other girls have prepared for you. Who knows....you just might be inspired to join us! :)
