Papercraft Star Challenge #164

The crafting bug has bitten me!  I woke up early and went right to my craft room to make another card.  I was looking at my Feedly account and came across this Papercraft Star Challenge that someone else had entered.  It's new to me and I loved their inspiration photo and ideas.

One of the suggestions Papercraft Star mentioned was a fall door.  I've had these doors in my stash for a long time and never used them.  It is a die cut exclusively available at my local stamp store Buffalo Stamps and Stuff.  They come with the die cut and screen.  There are quite a few in the pack and are very reasonably priced.  (I think you could contact them to purchase some.)  This one was white and I distressed it with some distress inks.  The wreath is from the Sunflower Wreath stamp set by Taylored Expressions.  I used the die to cut it out from watercolor paper so I could use Distress Markers to color it.  I added a bee and more sunflowers as well as stickles to make it shimmer.  The base of the card was run through a woodgrain impression plate for some texture.
I hope you are enjoying your autumn.  It's raining here today, but I don't mind.  It's all part of the experience, right? 
Thanks for stopping by again.  I have another post here which I hope you'll stop by and see.  Enjoy your Sunday!
