Autumn Woods

Hi friends! I made this card for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. I took inspiration from three elements in the trigger photo (shown below): The wonderful autumn colors; the wooden texture; and the various depths of the pegs.

I'm also entering it into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge, which is to make a card using the sketch below. I've been really enjoying the CAS-ual Fridays challenges. You still have a few days to enter that challenge and play along!

It's also a little extra special because it's the first card I'm posting using Joy's Life stamps. The Happy Thanksgiving sentiment is from her Holiday Occasions set. If you're into cards with cute, punny sentiments, I invite you to check them out. I'm so honored to have been selected as one of her designers and I am eager to get started!!

I used a Stampin' Up! punch to create the hearts, and the wood background is from Unity. All the wood grain was created with Versamark ink and the sentiment was stamped with Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Spice ink. It's hard to tell in the photo, but some of the hearts are stacked three high, some are two high and some are just one single, lonely heart. I hope you [heart] this card.

I also hope you are all enjoying this gorgeous fall foliage as much as me!!
