Fall Themed cards

Hello again, my friends!  Tonight I'm sharing a four cards that I've made in the few past weeks that I have not had time to share on my blog.  Also, I've had the great honor of being asked to join the Color Challenge Design Team at Splitcoaststampers, so the last two cards are from my debut as DT hostess on 9/25 and the first two were in support of another hostess the week before.  I'm not going to go into a lot of detail about how I created the cards but if you have questions, please email me at or leave a comment with your question(s).  Going forward I plan to share my color challenge cards, with creation details, on the day I post them.  If you're not familiar with Splitcoaststampers, check out the site here Splitcoastampers home page and check out more info here About SCS.

The first two cards tonight were made for CC653 on 9/19/17.  Pam was the Color Challenge hostess and she chose the colors Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive.  Delish!  "Dessert" was leaves, which I gladly used in my cards.  Here's a link to the challenge post:  SCS CC653.

and here's my 2nd card:

For the challenge last week I chose Fresh Fig, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry as my colors.  They blended together so beautifully, I loved how both my cards turned out.  Here's a link to SCS 654:
