A Fall Challenge..

Autumn is around the corner, I can see a few orange leaves on the trees. This is my favorite time of the year.. Shelli Gardner over at soShelli has issued an Autumn Challenge.. You can use Halloween, Back to School, Autumn etc.. This is the card reminds me of a nice brisk Autumn Balloon Ride over looking all the wonderful changing colors.. And just the colors themselves!

This is from the Sweet Centers Stamp Set, which you can use with the Sweet Treat Cups. I started with my candy first, then looked to see what colors would match the card stock. I'm all about coordinating!


My base is Dusty Durango, I ran a piece of Soft Suede through the Big Shot using a Texturz Plate, and then I added a strip of Crushed Curry that was punched with a Scalloped edge. I stamped my Balloon image on a piece of Very Vanilla using my markers to ink of the image. Then I re-stamped the image on a piece of Old Olive & Dusty Durango and cut out the basket image and paper pieced them. I used Old Olive, Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry & Soft Suede Inks.

I tied a piece of Crushed Curry polka dotted ribbon around the Vanilla piece and then layered it onto a piece of Old Olive and adhered it to the card with dimensionals. My Happy Birthday is stamped in Soft Suede and punched out with the Modern label punch. I added some Old Olive Brads to it before I adhered it down. Of course I had to use Teeny Tiny wishes!

Don't forget about the Mystery Hostess workshop that ends on Monday!
