Creative Knockouts #107 - Happy Fall Y'all!

Happy Fall Y'all is the theme for this week's Creative Knockouts challenge.   Our sponsor is Sami Stamps and her beautiful image, Bird Beauty is featured.  Aren't these fall colors lovely?!?  Using an idea I learned from an Online Card Class on creating backgrounds, I took a striped patterned paper and stamped a background stamp on top of it with Versa Mark and brown embossing powder.
Break out your fall colors and join our challenge this week!  The DT has some inspiration for you at the Creative Knockouts Blog.

Dream Valley #115 - Autumn Colors
Craft Your Passion #279 - AG
