OCC Happy Fall Y'all!

It's Saturday, which means it's time for the OCC Challenge brought to you this month by Dana Grothaus!


Since Labor Day marked the end of summer, we thought we would challenge you to make a Fall/Autumn card this week. You can interpret this any way you like, but some ideas are to use fall colors like browns, oranges, and reds. You could incorporate pumpkins, leaves, acorns, etc.

Well, I went through my stuff and I seem to have a serious disconnect between summer and Christmas. I have next to no fall or Halloween stamps, and I had no idea! My craft stash shows nothing happens after florals and before snowflakes! After searching high and low, I realized I had a multi season set I just got that should do the trick;


For the inspiration challenge today, Steph has found a website that carries darling children's clothes for our perusal called CWDKids. I found this adorable girl's coat, and used it for my inspiration.

Check out the stunning creations by the rest of the OCC design team using the links on my sidebar.

Have a marvelous weekend.

stamps; wandering words (SU!)
paper; sonoma collection (scenic route), brown (bazzill), vintage core'dinations
ink; coffee bean pigment (tsukineko)
accessories; striped ribbon (SU!), aged copper brads (making memories), aged copper corner detail (tim holtz ), molasses smooch (clearsnap)

Super card for this week's OCC challenge, Loretta. All the layers and textures are fabulous and I simply love that metal photo corner you used. Love that wide ribbon too. I haven't bought any of it because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to tie it nicely, but yours is terrific!
