Fall Card

This is the first of three Fall cards that I have to make for my next card club meeting. I was so inspired by a card I found that I couldn’t wait to go home and try my own version. The original inspiration can be found at Anna’shandmade cards. This is my version ( I love it!):

 And the inside:

While my layout came from Anna, my element choices came from many challenge blog challenges. So many of them had fall themes that it was easy to incorporate the requirements into my card.
Items used:
DP:DCWV 6x6 Sweater Weather paper pad
Dies: Tim Holtz Big Dies Tattered Leaves (covered with Tim Holtz Terminology Tissue Wrap)
          Spellbinders Floral Ovals (2nd largest one)
Stamps: Lacy Sunshine digi stamp Tansy Plum Ray (colored with copics)
              Just Right Cling “Hangin’ Around” set (sentiments and pumpkin)
Embellishments: Pearls, Ribbon, Burlap Ribbon, Lace, Stickles, Glitter Paint, Pearl Pen
Inks used: Distress Ripe Persimmon, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Dried Marigold and Brown Momento

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you like what you see here. Remember-Lacy Sunshine has a progressive challenge. If you use one of their images in the current challenge, you can get a free one for the next challenge. Check them out-they have great digi stamps.

I also noticed that Ladybug Crafts Ink is closing. This is their final challenge and ends Sept. 30. It is always sad to see a papercrafting company close. I wish them well in their future endeavors. The theme for the challenge is "Favorite Image". While Tansy may not exactly be my favorite, she is really cute and Lacy Sunshine images are among my favorites. I guess I can't name just one stamp as my favorite.

I am entering the following challenges: Use Pumpkins (The base DP and small pumpkin on bow) Use Glitter (stickles, glitter paint, wink of stella and gellyroll glitter pens) Leaves & Lace In the Garden (Base DP is a pumpkin patch even though you can't see much of it) Circles and Dots (Ribbon and DP) Favorite Image

Hi Annette...Thanks for stopping by yesterday and leaving me a wonderful comment for my card. You mentioned that you wish you had more scripture verses and I am not sure whether you already stumbled upon Word Art Wednesday Challenge Blog for most (if not all) of the scriptures I incorporate in my card are downloadable free at that site. Every week, we have new ones and you can start a collection right now if you stop by there. Being in the DT for that group really got me focus in sharing the Word of God through crafting. Hope this helps. Hugs and blessings!


PS: Just want to tell you how adorable Fall card in this post. Love the inking and the layers...

Such a pretty card, Annette - love the autumn shades. Thanx for sharing with us at Fantasy Stampers, but as you used a digital image I am unable to consider your card for our Top 3. Hope to see you again soon with your stamps.
