Oak Leaf Wreath - 1st Fall card!

Here's a quick late Saturday post...I'd hoped to get more done today but alas the creative process was not a quick one and house cleaning was actually calling my name (that's NEVER happened before!). So here's what I came up with using Faith's Designed 2 Delight free stamp with Delightful Inspiration. Guess summer really is over as everyone's moving into fall/Halloween-themed challenges. Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. ABC challenge - C is for Charms
2. BasicGrey Challenges - Paper Piecing + Basic Grey item: I paper pieced the wreath with pp from the Indian Summer BG paper pad and those swirls of pearls are also BG
3. By The Cute And Girly - Indian Summer: can't go wrong with these BG paper in this theme
4. Critter Sketch Challenge - Fall related
5. Cupcake Craft Challenges - let's get digital: the image and inside sentiment are digital
6. Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges - anything goes + digital stamp
7. Double Delight Challenge - fall colors + delightful inspiration image
8. For Fun Challenges - ribbon or lace
9. Little Paper Shop - orange, olive, and kraft
10. Meljen’s Designs - stripes: kinda of a stripe pattern on that background paper
11. No Time to Stamp - leaves
12. Pollycraft Monday Challenge - add a little nature
13. Res-Q Challenge - use your scissors: gotta alot of use of my scissors on this one...cut the wreath out 3 times and then cut the individual leaves...
14. Sketches by Carly - sketch
15. Stampin’ B’s Design Team - use a charm
16. The Crafty Pad - simply pearls
17. The Wild Flower Patch Wednesday challenge - fall colors
18. Totally Paper Crafts - charming
19. Your Next Stamp - anything goes

Here's the finished inside...
Thanks for stopping by!
Aloha,

Fantastic! Love your idea of punches on this card-circle for the wreath and the corner punch really sets off the matting. And looking closer, the wreath looks paper pieced?!? Wow, that walk really paid off in your Mojo! Love it! Till later, Love, SAM aka MOM
