Happy World Card making Day!  What are you creating today?  I thought I would post this fall card I made last week for a challenge over at Splitcoast stampers for the sketch challenge on Wednesday.  You can also go to the right side of my page and click on my gallery at SCS.  This one was sooo simple to create!  I just cut out the square and used some stickers from my stash (Karen Foster) and inked them with Tim Holtz distress inks.  Added stamped sentiment.  I am also entering this card in a few challenges this week as follows: challenge week #227 - Autumn colors challenge - Autumn We're going Dotty Anything Goes Challenge #20 - Anything Goes Challenge #167 - Colors of Fall - Favorite Colors Anything Goes
