Card Concept Challenge #22: Thank "fall"

The weather is definitely changing...even in California we are having some comfortably warm days with nice, crisp nights.  It definitely is Fall...which brings me to this week's Card Concept Challenge #22.  This week's theme is Thank"fall" and wait until you see the photo we had to work cozy and definitely perfect for Fall.
It's a no-brainer that the colors were beautiful this week, but it was the beautiful texture of the cream colored siding on the house that inspired my card representing the Freestyle Collage design style.
In addition to the embossing folder to mimic the siding, I used lots of coordinating bits of patterned paper to die cut my banners, leaves, acorns and hexagons.  Freestyle Collage is such a fun design style to use...there's almost nothing you can't add to your card and have it still fit that category...a great time to use up all those little pieces and extra die cuts you have lying around.

Since we've almost reached our one year anniversary for the Card Concept Challenge, I am sure you all know how to play along by now...just make a card using the theme and in one of the six different card making styles.
Clean and Simple
Clean and Layered
Clean and Graphic
Freestyle Collage
Shabby Chic
Classy and Elegant

You have two weeks to play along...the contest ends on Monday, November 10th at noon, PST.
