Happy Fall - Woodware USA Challenge 45

Pin ItFor the new challenge on the Woodware USA Blog (WWUSAC45), we are challenging you to create a Fall card/project. While I didn't have a WWUSA stamp set that screamed 'Fall', I knew the cute little trees in their Patch A House stamp set would be great for a fall card.

The decorative strip on my card was inspired by {THIS CARD} at Splitcoast Stampers. I was drawn to the wide ribbon and how some of the elements on the circle were adhered with foam dots. For the sentiment, I used the 'happy' stamp from Woodware USA's Daffodils stamp set, then spelled out 'Fall' with homemade glitter stickers.

Just the details… (1) Paper-pieced the tree and adhered the branches/leaves with foam dots, (2) Made my own glitter alpha stickers using die cut letters, glitter and a Xyron, (3) Used lots of foam dots for extra dimension and layers.
