Alota PCP Challenge 17 - 3-D!

A new challenge has started up at the Alota Rubber Stamp Paper Craft Planet group! And this week it is hosted by none other than The boss lady herself, Helene! She asked us to go 3-D ... I have had a lot of these popping cards in the last week. Isn't it funny how all the challenges at once ask for the same time without knowing it...

But first I want to show off what Hubby came home with Saturday for my birthday!!! Aren't they gorgeous. Then he took me to a LSS for a garage sale and big shopping sale... and then he took me to dinner!!! OH and on the way home we stopped by the hardware store and got the windows for my Craft room... Yes I am very lucky... he is a keeper!

Now for my card...

I started with one of the new releases from Alota Rubber Stamps - This is "Celebrating Fall" Are they adorable or what? Love the look on the bug in the wheel barrow... I colored everything with my Copics... including a second image to have a few things to pop for the challenge!
You can see here I popped the raking bug and LOTS of the leaves... used foam dots.

For my card I picked a golden yellow color to go with the fall colors. The papers are all from the DCWV Fall stack. (Thanks HELENE!!) And that ribbon is just gorgeous isn't it.. from American Crafts I believe.
The sentiment is also from Alota Rubber Stamps..

I do hope you will pop over to the Alota Rubber Stamps PCP group site and join in on the fun! Helene give wonderful prizes and all you have to do is use an Alota image and what ever the challenge is to get in on the fun!

Better get busy.. have a bit of work to do, then have to clean house. Later today I have an old friend coming out to see the donkeys - love showing them off!

HUGS and have a wonderful Monday!
