The Colors of Autumn

Oct9FallColorBerries crp

I’ve become a COPYCAT! I admit it… sheesh, you think I was smart enough to come up with this on my own?! The little snippet of card, like a banner at the top of a post…I saw it on my friend and fellow team member, Broni’s blog. *APPLAUSE*


Today, October 9th…my baby is EIGHTEEN years old!!!
Happy Birthday Jared!!!
You’re a great kid…uh…young Man!
God Bless You


Our Angels Landing challenge this week was to use FALL colors. Easy for me right? My FAVORITE time of year!!

I chose to use one of the Circle Birds from Autumn Tweetings. As the name indicates, the bird is in a circle, but I had to play a little in Photoshop!

Oct9FallColorBerries I elongated it, stretching it till I got what I thought looked like a good size…lol

Lucky me, it was perfect to fit the Spellbinders scalloped oval!

It’s all colored with Copics. The patterned paper is from the Green Stack, DCWV recycled paper. The gold papers are Prism and the grey-green fence and layer are colored with a Copic to match the leaves.
The ribbon is Basicgrey…and I just love that dimple punch for the corners!

Lots of cutting with my craft knife, but I think it turned out really cute!

Enjoy your day

Thanks for stopping!

Gorgeous coloring, Dawn, and what a beautiful card this is!! Your hand must've hurt after all that cutting!!

Dawn, I figured you would have had to try printing this elongated circle image multiple times to get it to fit that scalloped oval die. You've got quite an eye for proportion, getting it right on your first attempt. Your cutting is so intricate and precise. Beautiful.
