Less is More #454

Today's card was inspired by 1 challenge...

Less is More // #LIM454 ...A one layer card challenge!! OLC with an autumn theme.  I'm not a fan of OLCs but play along with these challenges  because it is good to work outside of your comfort zone.  For my one layer/fall themed card I used Stampin Up's Beautiful Autumn set.

Verse of the Day:

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

 3 challenges inspired today's card...

Retro Rubber // #rrcb169 ...An "anything goes" challenge!!  The catch with this challenge is that you always need to use a stamp set that is over a year old.  I am using Stampin Up's Waterfront set that came out in 2018.
Update:  This card was a "top pick" by the Retro Rubber team!!  Thanks for the shout out!!

CASology // #396 ...A cue card challenge!!  The cue card for this current challenge is VIEW!!  There is no view like that of the sun through the trees from your cabin deck in the mountains.

The Paper Players // #PP563 ...A theme challenge!!  BIRTHDAY is the theme but the design team is also asking that it be a CAS card...clean and simple!!
