Color Dare #463 ~ Fall Photo Inspiration

Happy Friday! Fall looks different in very part of the world. Here is Colorado we are slowly beginning to see cooler temperatures and the leaves are beginning to change. For Color Dare Challenge #463 we have a fun one for you. We have a photo inspiration for this weeks challenge, simply choose at least three colors from the photo plus Black and White are free.

I love this photo inspiration! Maybe it is because fall is my favorite! I heard a survey saying would you choose to only have Fall all year or have the other 3 seasons and never have fall. For me I would choose to have fall all year round!

For this card I used the Honey Bee Scattered Leaves Stencil with Brushed Corduroy and Vintage Photo Distressed Oxide Ink. I used the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cut and then matted with Mocha Cardstock. I used Mocha, Paprika and Papaya cardstock for this Sunflower by Honey Bee Stamps. I added a bit of Rose Gold Shimmer Trim to go with the sentiment which is from the For All Occasions stamp set. I added a couple of Rose Gold Sequins for a little bling.

Now it is your turn to create!

I then used versamark to stamp anniversary and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I used the Doodled Florals Stamp and thin cuts.
