Fall colors and challenges galore!

It's been an exciting time around here! I've been crafting whenever I could get a moment free, though those have been rare currently as I am in the middle of my OB-GYN rotation. I've seen 2 C-sections and helped with a delivery so far, and it's only been the 3rd day today! Anyways, I had the afternoon free today, and I made this card.

 I've been watching so many YouTube videos in the mornings when I was getting ready, and I got inspired by some of Kristina Werner's one-layer cards, like this one, which features masking and stamping techniques.

I don't have masking paper, so I used a bunch of regular Post-Its. I used quite a few stamp sets on this project: SSS Giving Thanks (Sentiment and stripes), SSS Colors and Sunshine (Smile panel), SSS Sending Love (small dots), SSS Love this (striped rows); My Cute Stamps's Owlways and Forever friends (tree/branches);Lawn Fawn's Petite Florals and Teeny Tiny Backdrops (Flowers panel and Stars panels).

I'm entering this card into 3 different challenges: 

Have a great day! ~Craftyziti
