The challenge this week at 'Wednesday Stamper' was 'Autumn'. I only used one stamp from 'Above the Mark'....a leaf background stamp. I layered strips of scrapbooking paper with clip art & a few leaf 'punchs' (& inks). The funny thing about this collage is that by itself it fell short...I wasn't pleased. BUT, when I picked up a scrap of leaf paper and some red matboard...it had instant punch and interest to my eye. It IS important to save all those bits of scraps!...smile.
