PPC-CC #32, 4 Crafty Chicks, SSC170

Good morning everyone! Hope you all got out and enjoyed the lovely autumn weather this weekend. I had to work this past weekend again but did get to enjoy some outdoor shopping at the downtown farmer's market. Learned a few things like how brussel sprouts grow! We did see a lot of families out taking photos with all the fall leaves. I'm doing a triple hitter today. I've combined this week's Picture Perfect Creations Color Combo with 4 Crafty Chicks "Fall" themed card along with Stamping 411's Saturday Sketch Challenge. I haven't done a triple challenge combo for a very very long time. I often don't like combining this many challenges because I don't like visiting blogs that make 1 project and list about 10 different challenges that it remotely qualifies for. 
I'm really liking this French Foliage set from SU. You can't tell from the photo but the main image is actually stamped onto glossy card stock and then colored with a sponge dauber. It looks really pretty in person, I swear! I had to move the main image to the other side because I wanted to put a sentiment and it just didn't fit if I tried to squeeze the panel beside the bow like in the sketch. Hopefully I don't get my hand slapped too hard! The sentiment is from a retired hostess set called Holiday Best. That ribbon is the new poly-stiched ribbon in Pear Pizazz. Another project knocked off my list for the No paper/product buying challenge. Hopefully you get to join in on at least one of the challenges!

Sandy you have made a stunning card with the colors this week! I love that you used just a touch of green for your Fall card! It definately fits our challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks. Sure glad you entered it. It is a perfect card for PPC too! I have never seen this stamp set used and it is awesome. Thanks for sharing your inspiration. You rocked all of your challenges!
