Creative Knockouts Challenge: Fall sponsored by Doodle Pantry

This week's challenge at Creative Knockouts is to make a project with the theme Happy Fall.  I know that I'm supposed to be the scrapbooker over there, but this week I've brought you a card.  It just doesn't feel like fall yet for me.  It's odd, I know it's October, but the weather has been pretty warm, and I haven't spent much time outside to see the changing leaves, so I haven't made that switch.  Since I'm still in a bit of a summery mindset, I haven't been doing any autumn activities with my family yet.  No fall activities = no fall pictures = a card for my challenge project this week.  Maybe you'll see a layout next week.

Now that I'm done with that tangent, let me introduce you to this week's sponsor Doodle Pantry.  They have a ton of adorable images in their store.  I work better with inanimate objects than people and animals, so I chose a collection of fall leaves that they have in the store called "Lively Leaves"  it comes with 5 separate images of leaves, several leaf clusters, and 4 fall themed sentiments.  I decided to print my 3 favorite leaves and color them with my Derwent watercolor pencils, blending with water and distressing the edges with Distress Ink.

I used papers from my October Counterfeit Kit to make this card, just adding the button, embroidery floss, and metal accents from my stash.

I hope you like the card. Let me know what you think!  While you're here, use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter a giveaway for a custom 20-page scrapbook project from my scrap 4 hire site
