We're starting off this wonderful Wednesday day with some more great news. It's beginning of a fabulous new challenge at The Frilly and Funkie Blog!
I'm hosting for the next two weeks, and I've chosen the theme of: Autumn Splendor! Simply create a vintage or shabby chic project using the rich colors of autumn, and remember to include an autumn leaf somewhere in your project.
For challenge details and exciting prize information just click on the blog link above. We'd love for everyone to join in, so pull out those seasonal supplies and get a jump on your fall crafting!
I love this season! I always get excited about traveling to the mountains for apple picking and leave watching, the first cup of hot cider, pumpkin desserts, and corn mazes. The inspiration for my card comes from the breathtaking fall foliage we enjoy on our fall holidays in the Smoky Mountains.
I layered, distressed, and stitched Maja Design's Walking in the Forest collection to form the base of the card. An elegant autumn bouquet became the focal point. I die cut almost all of the embellishments using Alterations and Spellbinders dies, then began assembling my elements. The flowers are from Prima.
Everything received a gentle dusting of Gesso. If you look closely you'll find a flourish liquid pearls tucked in among the leaves. As usual, my favorite final touch is a rustic twine bow.
