Stamp With Shel Wednesday- Around The World on Wednesday Blog Hop


Good Morning Stampers! 
Today my creative friends and I are hopping around the world to share creative ideas with you.  

This was our challenge: 
Enjoy being creative with the photo and color inspiration from our Color Challenge...
So how will you interpret it?!?
What better place than to "fall" in love?!? Which colors will you choose to work with?
Enjoy this fall-themed color challenge and most of all have FUN!

So....I am not going to lie this was a tough one for me.  I have a featured bundle on my blog this week where I promised that all the cards I made this week would be made with that bundle....Here is the Joy of Noel Bundle: 

Yep, a Christmas bundle and I need to do a color challenge for a fall-themed card.  LOL.....oh what messes I get myself into!  

Well, not to break a promise, I have managed to create a fall-themed card using fall colors featuring the Joy of Noel bundle!  Here is my card:

I used the ink spot swipe technique to create my own fall-colored DSP for the background. 
Then I stamped the greenery image and colored it with fall colors! 
Changing up the greeting from a Christmas made all the difference!
