Creative Knockouts #107: Happy Fall, Y'all!

THIS IS MY SECOND POST TODAY! Scroll down for my card for the amazing and fabulous Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog!

Good morning stampers! I hope everyone's Thursday is off to a fantastic start!  For my second post today, I want to share a super fun card for this week's Creative Knockouts (#107) where the challenge is....Happy Fall, Y'all!  Woohoo! Fall is my absolute favorite season, and Halloween is my favorite holiday! This week's sponsor is Sami Stamps and they are offering a wonderful prize to a lucky player!


Here is my card using this awesome little boy fall image Pumpkin Smiles. What's better than a cute little man with an enormous jack o lantern? Probably not much :)



My man is colored with Copics. Button from Dress it up. Dies from My Favorite Things. I wanted to play along with the challenge from Sami Stamps so I doodled a border around my main image (I started out with a cardstock border but it was too big and clunky so I had to cut it off and wing it from there. EEK! But I'm actually really happy with it, so phew! All's well that ends well).

I used another of the Verve September Sketches for this card (#2):



That's it for me today! Don't forget to swing over to the Creative Knockouts blog to link up your projects for your chance to win! My DT sisters have created some beautiful inspiration, so leave them some love too!
