Happy Autumn

I have fallen in love with this stamp set Happy Autumn and am always looking for ways to use every single stamp in the set.

The floral images are great and so are the sentiments.  As the temperature is getting lower I am inclined to make more Fall cards.  

I am sharing a card based on the sketch from Mojo Monday:

I like the simplicity of the sketch and I've used the grid technique as suggested by Just Us Girls on my card:

This is my first time playing with this grid technique and I like it A LOT!  It is easy and convenient but such a technique adds so much fun to the card!  Thanks JUGS for sharing this technique with us! Imagine if the grid technique not used, my card would be rather dull and flat.

While making this card, I came to realize that I do not have any brown embossing powder for the sentiment "Happy Autumn" so I used the bronze embossing powder from Ranger.  I've only used that on manly projects but am happy to find out that it works great on a Fall card.  This is one of those "surprise" moments!  Yay!

My card is entering the following challenge:
613 Avenue - Anything Goes/ Fall
