Stampin' Celebration #60

November 1st and another Stampin' Celebration challenge!  This is an exciting month since we are also welcoming a new member to the Design Team--Jenny Peterson!  Make sure to stop by her blog and welcome her.  :-)  My card for this month: 

I took my inspiration from the top right photo--wood cabin and colored leaves.  We also made this card at our October Stampers club meeting since it shows off some of the fun new product from the Holiday Catalog

I've been loving the new Core'dinations Cardstock and the fun look you can get.  I used the Early Espresso color and ran it through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I sanded a little bit along the wood grain to bring out the lighter color that is in the middle of the card stock giving it a really neat look.  If you'd like to read a little more about how I did the leaves, you can see this post here

We'd love to have you play along with us this month at Stampin' Celebration! You have until November 25th to link your creation (a card, 3D item, digital item, scrapbook layout, etc.) to the Stampin' Celebration blog and be in the running for the "Pick of the Party" at the end of the month. We can't wait to see what Stampin' Celebration inspires you to create!
