Challenge #3 One More Batch of Autumn-Inspired Mixed Media Cards for the Road

All of you continue to wow us with your gorgeous autumn mixed media cards! Fifty-six (56) AHH-mazing cards are in the gallery -- a veritable feast for the eyes! Our current challenge ends in 3 days so if you haven't played with us yet, come play!

This month's challenge is sponsored by Add A Little Dazzle. AALD has generously provided the girls in the design team craft metal sheets and you've seen us use them throughout our cards this month. Create a mixed media card with the optional element (metal or leaves or both) and you'll get a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to use towards products in the AALD Boutique!

We've got one more batch of autumn-inspired mixed media cards for you. Check them out and then link up yours here.
