For this challenge, I decided to use this month's digital stamps: BUGAUTCRITT02 AUTUMN CRITTER STACK 02 and the color combination suggested by Connie.

I had this stepping card die from Sizzix since a while and I finally got to use it. I added some papers from my CTMH old stash and recollections cardstock.

This stepping card has plenty of dimension and spaces for embellishments:

I added some of Connie's Crafty Card epoxy stickers and buttons. The Thank You die cut is from the Teresa Collins' set that came with my Cut n' Boss.

I added a left over piece of gold specialty cardstock to ground the sentiment, cut also from specialty cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed this card and decide to join us at Connie's.

Many blessings in All Saints Day,

Vicky Tovar
