Fall and Brads

Well I'm back and it sure felt good to have paper and stamps back in my hands It's challenge # 26 over at the friday mashup. They are doing a Fan Favorite. 

The mashup is a fall theme with lots and lots of brads. My collection of  fall stamp sets is pretty small. But here's what I came up with.
My colors are Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla. I dress the card up with lots of gold brads because I didn't have enough of the yellow ones. I used the Sanded background stamp on all pieces and edged them all in soft suede.The little leaves on the background is from an old set I don't know the name. But it has a stamp that says sending a basket full of warm wishes. I then colored them in with colored pencils. The sentiment stamp is from the hostess set called A little bit of Happiness. I also colored these leaves in with colored pencils

Well I hope you like my card. 
Happy Stamping

Hi Karen, Welcome Back, so glad you joined us this week! You've certainly come back with a bang, this card is just fabulous. Love all the stamping on your layers, it always adds interest to a card without overloading it. Nice lot of brads too!
