Happy Autumn

Hello, stamper friends! 
Hopefully you are enjoying a long weekend filled with pleasant activities. 

I really like playing along with the challenges at CAS(E) this Sketch. I love jump starting my projects with the sketches and the weekly inspiration from the design team. Some of those gals are my favorite stampers!

Imagine my pleasant surprise to find that THIS card of mine was chosen as a favorite this week. Makes me want to play along again, right? 

That's what I did. 

The sketch had lines fanning out on either side of the sentiment. 

I went looking for some graphic stamps with a basic shape and found these leaves from Papertrey Ink's Stylized Autumn set. I stamped them on white card stock, masking as needed to save room for the greeting. 

I got excited with the look when I found this wonky Be Happy die to use for the sentiment. The negative of the die cut served as a guide for lining up the letters. I also stamped and die cut the flowers and popped them on foam dots for dimension. 

On the inside I stamped the words, Be Strong.

I'm so glad you popped by to visit my blog today! 

Be yourself.
