Season of Harvest

Autumn has always been my favorite season. It seems as if we were just creating summer cards yet here we are assembling our materials for the fall. Beginning on Monday, September 20, Double Trouble Challenge #93 will run for two weeks, ending on Sunday evening, October 3, 2021. There are always three "Things" to consider when taking on our challenges:

Thing 1 (required): Trouble Maker has established that the challenge theme is Anything Goes. We all love that!

Thing 2 (optional): Double Dare hopes you'll take a few minutes to link up with any active challenge where we have previously partnered. Check out the DTC challenge blog for a list. I shared my card at The Paper Funday Challenge #33.

Thing 3 (optional): Twisted Sister would like you to include a Harvest item in your card design. This can be anything from an apple pie to a scarecrow. I included a patterned paper with fruits and vegetables that are abundant in the fall.

Keeping the layout simple but including extra layers to add dimension, a panel of gingham, cut on the diagonal and matted with vanilla cardstock, was adhered to a green card base. Next, the panel of fall foods was matted with green cardstock and adhered to the card using foam tape. Finally, the sentiment was added, also with foam tape, and a few gold metallic studs. The inside was lined with a panel of vanilla cardstock and decorated with coordinating paper plus a fussy cut eggplant.

For a chance at the random prize, be sure to join our challenge. Additional chances are available if you also participate in the options offered by Things 2 and 3. Visit the
