Play Date Cafe Challenge #156

ETA: This is my second post of the day. If you're here to check out Day 3 of the WMS release countdown, please scroll down or click here. :)

Hello friends.

Thursday has rolled around again, and it is once again time for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge! This week's colors are so wonderfully seasonal: cinnamon, squash, vanilla, and sage.

This week we are being sponsored by DRS Designs. They supplied us with some of their unmounted red rubber stamps for our creations, and here is what I made:

I used the Fall Leaf with Acorn and combined it with the 1 Line Beauty of Autumn sentiment.

I stamped the image once onto my vanilla cardstock and then onto my different colored cardstock. I cut out two leaves and the acorn and paper pieced them onto my card. I flecked a little Perfect Gold Perfect Pearls onto my card too for some fun splatters. The sentiment was stamped onto a strip of patterned paper and adhered to the bottom. Love the simple design of this, allows this gorgeous image to take center stage.

Now I invite you to head over to the The Play Date Cafe Blog to link up your creation. You have through Tuesday, November 6th to play along. While you're there, you can check out the Cup of the Week prize from this week's challenge sponsor, DRS Designs. Thank you, DRS Designs, for sharing your fabulous stamps with us this week!

This week we are also saying farewell to our two Private Blend Designers, Amy Tsuruta and Connie Mercer. These ladies have brought such amazing creativity to the team, I will miss them. I am sure we'll be seeing lots of crafty fabulousness from each of them, though!

I can't wait to see what you come up with for this week's challenge! Have a super day!
