WMS Blog Party - Autumn

Today I'm participating in the Waltzingmouse Blog Party (it happens every 17th of the month and the topic is announced on the WMS blog on the 1st of the month so you have plenty of time to create!)

This month's theme is Fall/Autumn - using fall colors and/or fall stamps!   You will find all the details of the party here.
I used Saturday's WMS sketch for my card today.
and here it is!
I inked the trees from Teeny Trees with 3 different Memento colors and stamped them on Rustic Cream cardstock. I stamped the tree trunk over the trees and then sponged the squares with Mustard Seed Distress Ink.  I layered them to Tempting Turquoise squares and layered them over the DP with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment (also from Teeny Trees) and cut it with a banner die and sponged the inside with Mustard seed before removing the die.  I curved the banner on my finger and layered it over the DP with foam tape, doubling it up in the center to give it contour.  I tied the wrinkled seam tape around the top in a triple bow before layering the panels to the card base and then added the rhinestones!

So get cracking on your fall card and link it up over at the WMS blog - you have 24 hours!

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
