If you look through my blog lately, it is pretty obvious I am wishing that Summer is over and that Fall has arrived. I am so ready for the great colors of Fall, even if in California you can only see those colors in cardstock! No changing leaf colors anywhere near my home, but I just happen to have nearly every Fall color you can think of right in my craft room and can use my imagination to picture what those changing leaves look like. Today I did just that, created a card using Fall colors and combined it with a very cute sketch from Seize the Sketch #1. I am so happy to get in on the very first challenge. Here's the cute sketch we had to work with:
Fanfare Scalloped Border die. I ran them through my die cut machine with a sheet of scrap paper next to the die so that the little cut out pieces would remain intact. I layered them all along the side so that they overlapped and then tried to think of something Fall-related that could represent the star in the picture. How about an acorn? I used Lil Inker Acorn die and embossed the top of the acorn with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The sentiment is from Lil Inker Darling Diamond stamp set. Can you tell I took all of my Lil Inker dies and stamps with me on vacation? My fun is just about to end though, I am going to have to pack it all up as we are heading for home on Friday and back to work on Monday. I guess Summer really is over!
