Fall bliss with Paper Players and Seize the Sketch

I'm loving all the fall colors and having fun making up several cards with all this warm-toned yumminess. I feel like I should be switcing to Christmas projects now (usually my favorite), but I'm not quite ready to accept that it's time!

Here are the fun colors over at Paper Players this week:

I paired this with the Seize the Sketch challenge (I always like their sketches. Fun to follow - not too fussy!)
Here is my card using all of these fun elements:
I used paper strips I trimmed from my Basic Grey Persimmon 6x6 paper pad. (Yummy for fall; but easily can be used for any occasion.) I stamped the mums from PTI's Mums the Word stamp set. Sadly, I had forgot about this stamp set (WHAAAAT?!) until I saw it used on a card somewhere else online. I think it got pushed to the back and behind some other stamps. I've decided that means I have way too much if I'm forgetting what I have only a few short months after purchasing it! I can't leave EVERYTHING remotely new out on my desktop, although it currently looks like I'm giving it a whirl. So - to sum up - the old adage "out of sight, out of mind" does apply.
I stamped the larger mum in CTMH Sunset ink, with the edges rolled in Chocolate ink. I stamped the smaller image in CTMH Sunflower ink and rolled the edges in Sunset ink. The stems and leaves are stamped in Chocolate. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
I am also linking this up in Wednesday's Simon Says Stamp Thanks/Thanksgiving themed challenge.
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
