OCC...Fall Color Challenge

Happy Saturday Peeps, 
It is time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge. 
This week our hostess is the fabulous Lori Rider and she has a great challenge for us.
It is a fall color challenge:

Beautiful Fall Colors!
I decide to make a fall birthday card, we have alot of those in the family
I started the card with a base of chocolate chip card stock and followed that with some very vanilla card stock. The DSP on here is from the Spice Cake paper pack. I then added a strip of chocolate chip that I embossed with the square lattice EF. Love that embossing folder, probably my all time favorite, so far anyway!
The main image piece is made up leaves from the Stampin Up Gently Falling stamp set. I stamped the leaves with Pool Party, Old Olive and Cajun Craze ink. I stamped the leaf lines with chocolate chip ink. The birthday sentiment is from the retired "Something to Celebrate" stamp set. 

I added an old olive double bow made with the 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon and an antique brad.

Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun  challenge. I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Fabulous my friend!!! Those are interesting colours. I don't think I have ever used Cajun Craze so this will get me stepping out of my box! Fun! Hope to play along sometime this weekend!

This is so pretty, Vicki. That DSP with the Pool Party blue is so perfect for this color challenge. What a super job you did with these colors. Between you and Wendy, you have me wanting this stamp set with the leaves! Just a gorgeous fall card!

Have a great weekend.

Wow Vicki ... what a fabulous card ... I love the patterned background and textured panel not to mention the leaves ... I love the simplicity of your design and the execution of your styling!

Vicki, as I sit here with my jaw dropped open, this is gorgeous!! The colors are featured beautifully on those leaves and I love how you used the Spice Cake DSP. I totally think I need to revisit NOT buying that stamp set, for sure. The double bow is the perfect finishing touch, too. Just beautiful! Hugs! :)
