Couldn't manage to get my card finished before I had to start work today. But I worked from home and was hoping to get finished on my lunch break. Didn't happen, so I'm just finishing it now while I'm waiting for a macro to run. I've combined Pam's lovely fall colors with Sandy's fun challenge. No dessert for me today. I haven't been stamping for very long--only about three years, so I had to go back to my scrapbooking days for old tools. I started the card off with what I think must be my oldest stamp (although it's new to me). It says 1998 on it. I colored it with markers and then decided it needed more, so I finished it off with colored pencils. I've used SC74 for the sketch even thought this large stamp resulted in too big a panel for the front of the card. It was sort of a fancy fold and I dug through my oldest DP from my scrapbooking days about fifteen years ago and used some of that. It doesn't show in the picture, but on that back piece, I used a pair of fancy border scissors to cut the red strip. Then I finished off the card with another old tool from scrapbooking--alphabet letters! They totally don't "go" with this card, but I couldn't resist. LOL!

This is such a gorgeous card Jen. This bold bloom with the subtle card base colors is really gorgeous. I can see the fancy cutting on the strip in the back and I love your gold letters. I have to admit that I was totally shocked you have only been stamping for about 3 years. That is impressive my friend! What a fantastic card for all of the challenges. ~Karen.
