Autumn Colors Challenge with The Stampsmith

Hello Everyone!
Time for the Stampsmith Challenge!  And, for the Challenge on the 15th, please use a stamp from The Stampsmith to be eligible for the gift certificate drawing.  The Theme is:
Colors of Autumn
For my Design Team  project, I wanted to continue with my Halloween theme and made this project using stamps from the Halloween Full sheet. 

Now, that is a scary sheet of stamps!  I used the sentiment, the Castle, and the black cats for my card.

The images were stamped on glossy white CS with black dye ink.  I used lots of different DP's (K & Company, Stmapin' Up)  and CS in Fall colors.  I also used embossing folders to add texture.

I added a sheer ribbon, black ric rac, and orange rhinestones for accents.  You have until Sept 29th to make your project and link it up on the Stampsmith Challenge Blog.  Have fun!  Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Note: Estelle at The Stampsmith is working on the new web site for the store.  That will be up and running soon.  The new site will make ordering easier and there will be lots of sample cards!!

Have a great day.  Love ya.
