First let me apologize for the lack of posts this week.
I've been busy with upcoming Design Team projects and didn't get a chance to do anything that wasn't on my to do list!
But this morning Nathan was at his Merit Badge college (the last of 3 weeks)with Andy and Georgia was at Girl Scouts so I got a couple of hours for me.
There were so many challenges that I didn't do last week so I wanted to fit as many as I could into this one card, I think I did good ;)
First I started with the sketch fom Sketch Saturday and I rotated it to fit with my image.
There were a lot of similar themes so it was much easier to have a big list this week;
My Time To Craft wanted an Autumn Fest
Allsorts was Autumn Days
Creative Inspirations was Autumn/Fall
Stamp With Fun was Autumn
Digital Tuesday was Autumn Leaves
Then came the recipes;
Play Along Monday had 1 Ribbon, 2 Eyelets (inside the card this time) and 3 colors, I chose Brown, Rust and Green
Digital Ink Co had 2 Designer Papers and 3 brads/buttons or eyelets (the buttons are embossed on the border)
Kaboodle Doodles wanted 1 cardstock, 2 dp, 3 embellishments and 1 digi image
Add some embellishment challenges;
Whimsy Stamps wanted Buttons, Buttons, Buttons!
Paper Cutz wanted at least 3 Buttons
I needed some techniques;
Basic Grey wanted Embossing (and BG paper of course)
La La Lands wanted Paper Piecing and you know I love that!
Cupcake Crafts wanted to see Distressing and so I inked the edges and sanded the edges, the leaves and th embossed border.
365 Cards Day 210 - Try A Technique, Sanding
Scrap And Stamp Saturday wanted Distressing and at least one stamp
Finally I need a color scheme so I found a color challenge and 2 "inspiration challenges"
Color Chef Challenge wanted Orange, Brown and Green and Cream or White
Pals Paper Arts had a Pottery Barn photo for inspiration and
Etsy Inspired had a jewelry store for inspiation and I chose this beautiful piece for it's copper and green tones and earthy feel.
This fabulous image of Cherry is from Pollycraft and I just love her!
I paper pieced the hat, dress and tree. I added color with Copic's to her faces and shirt and did markers and paper piecing on the sleeves.
I embossed my favorite embossing border folder which is those cute buttons! I then inked and sanded it.
I added the Harvest ribbon to the border and also took a piece to use as my sentiment.
The dp is Mellow by Basic Grey.
Inside is more dp and message mat with more ribbon and two heart eyelets.
A close up of all that paper piecing.
Anway I hope you like her and have a great weekend!
