Challenge #21 - Autumn Wishes

Hi Everyone!

It's C here in the latest installment of the Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge. This is a pretty great day for me. My lucky number is 21 and this is the 21st challenge for the "Dolls" and it is also my 40th birthday! Still not sure how I feel about this milestone but I can tell you I had a blast making my card for this week's challenge. I kept it simple for everyone...I went with a theme for this challenge...FALL. Create something beautiful and warm with the fall season as your inspiration. Whether it is the crisp air, the rustling leaves or the excitement of Halloween and all its sweet treats around the corner, I know you will find something special to capture your feelings about this time of year...

This card is squared at 5-1/2" and uses some fun October Afternoon paper, my fun new stamps (Jar Fall Fillers and Leaf Prints) plus some fantastic dies (Jar Label, Leaf, Spellbinders).  Here is a close up to see the details of the background stamping with Versamark for the leaves and the cute little acorns and colors of the jar contents (yah copics!).

I will post the details on my blog (Tradefish Designs) if you want more details. Remember, you have 3 weeks to post your project. Have a fantastic day everyone!


  1. Well Happy Birthday!!! 40 is not so bad, it's all on how you look at it :)
    Your fall card using the Friendship Jar Fall Fillers is wonderful! I really like the die cut fall leaves peeking out along the side of your main image!

  2. Your card is beautiful and this challenge is perfect! Happy Birthday and welcome to the 40's!

  3. What a perfect card for this time of year! I don't think I'll be able to find time to get around to making something for this challenge, but it is on my ever growing list of cards to make *some day*.
