i don't know about where you live, but where i'm at in ohio - it's really starting to feel like fall weather. when i woke up this morning it was 38 degrees outside and it only got to be about 52 degrees as a high today! brrr! despite being chilly all day, i decided to channel some of the beautiful aspects of fall - the changing colors of leaves specifically - for today's handmade card.

i was pretty jazzed when the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play today - i've been itching for a reason to use coordinating patterns. one of my favorite ways to do this is to utilize 6x6 paper pads. generally speaking, the colors coordinate and often share patterns/themes that mix well together. plus, the designs are smaller than traditional 12x12 pages so they look amazing on cards!

today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on color swatch, so i busted out the book i made for round one of #the100dayprojecti used siri on my phone who helped to select a number between 100-200 [167] and i pulled the corresponding ink colors. after scheming up a design in my head for a bit, i decided to create a 1-layer card and to use a new stamp set that arrived this weekend.
