It's Fall, Y'all!
Happy Monday, everyone! Wow, we had some fabulous weather here, yesterday! Sunny and 75 degrees! Unusual for late September, but I'll take what I can get! I'm looking forward to fall, but unfortunately not to the Winter weather. I absolutely hate snow!
Anywhoo, it's time for another challenge at Daisy's Doodles. This time, we are asking you to use fall colors and/or show us projects about giving thanks, to celebrate Canada's Thanksgiving. Our challenge runs for two weeks, so you have plenty of time to play along with us for your chance to win.
I used colors from the Rajasthani Hues color palette from Design Seeds. You can see the wonderful color palette, below.
My card layout today follows the sketch at Sketches By Carly. I just love Carly's sketches! They're so fun! This one, I admit, was a bit tricky for me, though. I used a piece of cardstock embossed with the Cuttlebug distressed stripes folder, then sponged Chocolate Chip ink over it, to enhance the embossed stripes and make them stand out. My leaves and pumpkins are all images from Daisy's Doodles. They've been colored with Promarkers. I found this fun fall colored paper in my stash and it seemed perfect for a fall creation. The leaf shaped gems came from Michael's in the dollar bin.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
