Autumn Wishes


Just came by to quickly post a CAS card I made today. My paper looks white but it is vintage cream. I do like cream more for Fall cards. Guess it had a mind of its own and knew what it wanted to look like.


I'm entering my cards into these challenges:
Seize the Birthday-Anything Goes Birthday-masculine or feminine
Great Impressions-Theme challenge is Fall colors (yes, that is PTI vintage cream with the embossing, although it is looking white after photo was made) Ugh!
Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery---September
Simon Says Monday Challenge--From dry embossed paper to creating a resist effect with clear embossing powder, extra fine embossing powder to melted UTEE in a pot--so many ways....


Recipe:
Stamps-Inspired by Stamping-Cute Circles
Paper-PTI vintage cream and Kraft, Stampin'Up! Old Olive and Dusty Durango, unknown dp
Ink-Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories-Inspired by Stamping Fancy Labels 2, Little Yellow Bicycle stick pins, Stampin'Up! Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, Sizzix embossing folder/Blossom, Circles, Leaves & Diamond set

The embossing looks gorgeous with your basic fall elements! I love the small piece of plaid behind the sentiment, and the pretty ribbon ties it up beautifully!

I like the plaid die cut behind the sentiment, Benzi. It is the first thing I noticed about the card. :) So fall like!

Glad you joined our IBS customer gallery, too. ;)

Oh my, this just sparkles! Your paper may have been cream, but it looks lovely on my monitor (in white too!). Love the EF you used and the plaid behind the diecut is so Fall! All the lovely colors. The green ribbon ties it all together and really draws the eye right into the card. TFS & Hugs

Gorgeous card, that's such a pretty embossing folder :) My camera 'lies' with colours too but unfortunately the nights are well on the turn here and I've no mission of getting a decent pic on a week night.
