Happy Fall Y'all!!

 Card #1 inspired by 3 challenges...

Hand Stamped Sentiments // #HSS425 ...A sketch challenge!!  I used this sketch for a single layer card a few days ago using the masking technique, but I wanted to layer it up for real today!!

Just Us Girls // #JUG702 ...A mood board challenge!!  The palette of colors on this mood board is a combination of oranges, rust, and yellow.  Perfect color combination for a pumpkin spiced mocha card.  I won these gnome dies from Nancy (a member of the JUG'S design team) during the #JUG700 challenge celebration and blog hop.  Thank you, Nancy!!  I know these little guys are made for Christmas, but I added coffee mugs and omitted the snowflakes included in the die set.  Card #2 actually fits the color palette for this challenge as well.

Never Before Used Schtuff // #NBUS55 ...A "never been used" challenge!!  This die just arrived in the mail Saturday and I wanted to put it all together and show it off...adorable little gnomes don't you think!?!

Card #2 inspired by 3 challenges...

Freshly Made Sketches // #FMS608 ...A sketch challenge!!  All cards have a sketch to them and for this second card the sketch from FMS was my pick.

Festive Friday Challenge // #FF00145 ...An inspo list challenge!!  From the inspo list celebrating Halloween, we are to use 3 of the 10 inspo list items.  My pick from the list: metallic thread, spider, and watercolor.

Cupcake Inspiration // #CI580 ...A theme challenge!!  Halloween fun is the theme for this challenge!  I am not a fan of spiders or bats but they do make for a fun Halloween card.

Also...both of today's cards also fit the challenge from Papercraft Challenges.  Their current challenge is a theme challenge and they are asking for cards to have a Happy Halloween 
theme.  #PC99
