That’s it…easy peasy!  The challenges will typically be the first of the month through the end of the month. However with our new design team starting just a bit into September we are revealing our September challenge today.

Yep, Anything Goes with the Optional Twist to use a Stamp. So to kick off the challenge, I made this quick and easy card. 

What You Can Win
AND a stamp set (Mailing available ONLY to USA address)
I will be sharing the picture of the Stamp Set On Sunday's POST!

Here is a look at my completed card. I used a kraft cardstock base. The size of the card is 4.25 x 5.5. I then cut a white mat and used my wood grain embossing folder from CTMH to add the wood texture to the mat.

I then cut the tag out in plain white cardstock. I sponged some ink to give it color. I used my Honey Ink PadGoldrush Ink Pad and Cranberry Ink Pads. I used the Always Grateful stamp set to stamp the tree image. I used my Cocoa Ink Pad for that.

I then cut the leaves out in white cardstock and then used some more ink to give them color. I used my Honey Ink Pad, My Pear Ink Pad and My Saddle Ink Pad.

I then used the Always Grateful Stamp set from Close To My Heart to stamp the sentiment. I used my Saddle Ink Pad for the color. I then turned to my silver sequins and used some of my Shin Han Markers to color in some of the sequins. I used my Marigold MarkerCherry Pink MarkerMahogany Marker and Vivid Green Marker.

Here is one last look at the finished card. I used a little foam tape to give the tag, leaves and sentiment just a little lift.

To help you get started, I am sharing this free file with you. Free through 9-13-15 only so you better hop over and grab it while you can!!! Plus while you're there, you can grab the other free files offered.
