Yesterday I posted a Christmas card and today I am playing with Fall colors. I couldn't get into the Fall theme without just the right patterned paper, and I wasn't able to find what I had in mind locally.
I have a friend, Sally, who lives in Missouri and she has the knack for sending little gifts at just the right time; this time it was a 6x6 paper pad called Happy Harvest by Doodlebug Design. It is just perfect to enhance any fall image. Also in the package were hundreds of small, detailed die cut leaves, acorns, branches, and other diecuts, each style packed in the perfect baggie for size and quantity!! I think Sally knows I would never have the patience to cut so many tiny items!! I have been known to hoard the things she sends, but this time I intend to use and enjoy!!
The flower is the smaller dahlia image stacked with a pop dot onto the center of the larger dahlia image from Penny Black's transparent set "Dahlias". Both flowers were stamped in VersaMark and embossed in white. Distress inks were rubbed onto each flower to create the color. That is real burlap that serves as the base for everything else!
I added white enamel dots and did a little stitching. I love the texture and colors in this card.
Don't forget about the Color Combo Challenge at the Penny Black blog. You have until September 27th to enter. This card most closely uses the color palette shown on Day 5 of the challenge.
Hope your weekend was a good one!
