Fun for Fall!!


Fall is my favorite time of year and I love making cards for the season. There were two challenges this week for which I thought my card would work. The first is to make a fall card with either leaves or pumpkins and glitter or emboss on the card. This one was Joan's Gardens . Just For Fun's challenge this week was to use orange, brown and olive, just the right colors!
I used Gina K's chocolate for the card base and added some of the retired dp from Stampin' Up to layer. My image is from SU's set Bountiful Blessings which is also retired. I colored with Prismas and oms. My glitter is on the leaves which I colored and cut out. I love the distressed look of this and hope that you will enjoy it too!
Just wanted to share some good news...I picked up a couple of commissions for cards and a paper craft project that I will post and show you when it is finished. I am so excited to get the work and to share with all of you. Take care and have a great evening...off to make dinner.
