Christmas with fall colors

A quick stop at AC Moore (a local craft store) can easily turn into a not so quick stop.  I am half way through crocheting a scarf and am almost out of yarn.  The pattern called for 5 oz.  I bought 5 oz.  The gauge is working out correctly.   But I needed to make a quick stop to grab another skein of yarn or it is going to be a very short scarf.  So I was on my way home from my dentist appointment, feeling a bit sorry for myself because I need to get a root canal and crown on the tooth I broke (to the tune of $1800!), and decided to do a walk around the store before picking up the yarn.  
A pack of Christmas stickers caught my eye,
 and I forgot all about the tooth, 
at least momentarily.    
Here was a way to make another Christmas card, using fall colors, and still enter some of the current fall challenges.  I even did a little sewing on it and added another pinecone sticker inside.
card front - frame and sentiment stamps used are CTMH

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:
Cards in Envy Challenge - Colors of Fall
Craft Your Passion Challenge #280 - Always Anything Goes 
Sparkle n Sprinkle September Challenge - Anything Goes (I've used SNS Antiquities EP for the sentiment.)
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Emboss It (Sentiment is heat embossed.)
QKR Stampede Challenge #157 - 3 of Something (3 pinecone stickers on the front of the card; 3 base layers, gold, barn red, and textured green)

  1. A gorgeous card and a great way of distracting yourself from root canal woes. My failed root-filled canal is being extracted in the next few weeks after over a decade of trouble. I am seriously considering getting a Silhouette to distract myself!! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT and best of luck with the tooth! April x
