Well it's Sunday and time for another challenge at the Sentimental Sundays Challenge Blog. This week Ann challenged us to make a card inspired by the season - autumn! I love the colors that rage around me this time of the year. Colorado is not quite as colorful as the northeast where I grew up, but it is still pretty impressive. We went out for breakfast this morning and stepping out onto the front deck I became immediately aware that it is now fall and long pants and sweatshirts will be coming out of the closets and drawers for sure!
I have made quite a few autumn/fall inspired cards and I'll be showing you some more over the next few weeks. This card uses all SU stamps and supplies. The stamps used to created the leafy background are from a set called French Foliage that is featured in the new Holiday Mini catalog. The sentiment is from a set called Grateful Greetings. I stamped French Script (now retired) on the Pear Pizzazz piece that has the sentiment framed by a hodge podge label holder. The card base is Chocolate Chip and the background was stamped on Naturals Ivory in Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie. I used a stamp from Itty Bitty Backgrounds (also retired) as a background for my sentiment. There's Victoria lace and an Antique Brad. I distressed the edges with the distressing tool on my Cutter Kit and sponged. I had lots of fun making this card!
I played with some new toys from Tim Holtz yesterday too - fun, fun, fun and a perfect way to spend a crafty World Card Making Day afternoon.
Thanks for visiting!
