Hello and thanks for visiting!
Isn't fall a terrific time of year, there is inspiration everywhere in nature! Today's card is inspired by 3 challenges. The #gdp360 CASE the Designer Challenge , I flipped Wilma's design layout and put the band of DSP at the top. The Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #397 inspires us with a beautiful fall photo this week, and living in Canada I had to choose the Maple Leaf from the Soft Seedlings Stamp Set of course. The Paper Players Challenge #609 Clean-and-Simple Challenge inspires us with Scarecrows and/or Leaves - oh I wish I had a scarecrow, that would be fun! alas it'll be leaves for this one :)

Assembly & Trix
* Adhere a 1/2 inch x 4 inch piece of Pretty Prints DSP, #159245 to a 4 x 4 1/2 piece of Basic White cardstock embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, #156505 then ***Trix, scrunch it up to create more texture, before adhering it to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Thick Basic White card base. Use a Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush®, #141897 to flick a bit of sparkle on the card base.
***Trix, use Sponge Daubers, #133773 to add ink to the stamp. I used Old Olive, Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral & Cajun Craze ink, then fussy cut it out. Twine the Linen Thread, #104199 around the stem and tie a bow.
* Stamp the sentiment with Calypso Coral ink and adhere to the card base with glue before adhering the leaf cluster with dimensionals. Embellish with Festive Pearls, #159963.

I love the soft sponging on your leaf. It gives it an almost translucent quality. The little gold pearls are the perfect finishing touch - especially against that gorgeous textured background. So glad you joined us at the Paper Players this weekReplyDelete
