CFC19, LIM32 - You and moi? Ooh la la!!

Hey - Today's card is based on two of my favorite challenges - first up is the CAS-ual Fridays "Falling to Pieces" challenge to use paper piecing on a fall themed card.
I paper pieced these cute little doggies (amuse|studio Ooh la la!) with patterned paper from the Basic Grey Basics Kraft 6"x6" pad.
The second challenge tackled was the Less is More (LIM32) "Seeing Double" - use two of something on a one-layer card.  It is no secret to Chrissie and Mandi from Less is More that I struggle with having adequate "white space" on the cards that I submit to their challenges.  This card has LOTS of white space - so much so that I think that I should receive a "Certificate of Merit" for my efforts (hee hee - I know that there is no such thing but if there was I'd nominate myself - humble attitude, huh?)
Those little piles of colorful leaves are cute on a card and even on the yard at the beginning of fall until 1) they get rained on, and 2) need to be raked up!!  At that point I curse the very large tree in our backyard which apparently only makes it drop more leaves and maybe even grow new ones to drop down on me in disdain over my bad attitude - when will I ever learn??
Supplies available through my amuse online shop!!
STAMPS - Ooh la la!, Hearts a Plenty, Polka Dot Patterns, Seasonal Branch (leaves)
