Fall is in the Air
Don't we wish Fall was in the air? Won't be long, though. Then, winter....ugh! My most dreaded season. I am like a chunk of ice until at least 80 degree weather returns.
I made my card for these two challenges: card positioning systems
This is their sketch this week:
Also, the card is make for the Color Throwdown challenge found here.
Using these colors was a little hard for me and I wanted to do an Autumn card but thought I needed to add some cream color for my image to show well. Then, I decided that was too much of the cream for an Autumn card so I crimped my cream base and
drug my Always Artichoke ink pad over it for a distressed look. Roughed up the edges a bit, also. For my side panel, I like the leaves falling gently over the lattice.
