Exploring Cricut Challenge #3

I am so excited! It's time for a new challenge at Exploring Cricut. It's been changed up a little bit. Instead of doing a partricular cartridge, we will now be asking for partricular things. Like this week our challenge is to make a project using leaves and an acorn and in Fall colors. I started one card for this and didn't like how it was going so didn't finish it. Then I made the one I'm showing. Liked it better, but still wasn't as happy with it as I wanted to be. So I did a third card. It turned out cute but it wasn't what I wanted either. Since I was running out of time, I really needed to go with either the one or the other. So I went with this one. I really love the bg papers. They are doing most of the work for me. It is from DCWV-the Autumn Splendor Stack. I have used so much from this stack that I'll have it all used up before long. The acorn and the leaf border are from Give-a-Hoot cartridge. Both can be found on page 31 of the handbook. The acorn is the Accent and the border is the Border. I cut them several times in different colors so I could piece them to get the colors I wanted. The hide contour on my Gypsy Girl wouldn't work on these, as the lines ran all together. I'm sorry, but I failed to take note of the sizes I cut them. I added the leaf brads in the top corners and one on the inside. Please take a moment to check out the projects my DT Sisters created for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!! And I sure hope ya'll have been checking out the daily projects. If you haven't, you sure have been missing out!! Now we would love for you to join in on our fun.
