Flowers on a fence....

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for your favorite challenge at the Simon Says Stamp challenge - Anything Goes!!  
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

My teamies and I have been playing with all things October Afternoon.  I chose the "9 to 5" paper pad and matching buttons.  I wanted to show off the papers, so I chose 5 of the papers and made a card based on a quilt pattern called "Rail Fence", really just a bunch of strips, turned 90 degrees each quarter. With these papers, it sure makes a colorful card:

SSS Anything Goes October Afternoon Sept. 26

Besides the October Afternoon products listed above, I also used a Nesties Labels One die, and flowers from these Hero Arts sets, (Stitched Frame and Layered Flowers) and  plus one of their sentiments from their "XO" set, also a Sizzix die for the leaves and a bit of crochet thread.

Our generous Heidi has provided us with a $50.00 gift voucher for the random winner of this challenge - you can use it for anything you'd like at the Simon Says Stamp store!
