Autumn Days


No, it's not autumn yet! But, I just got this new Autumn Days set from SU and could not wait to try it out. Also, a blog group I'm in (Eyelets, Ribbon, Paper...Oh, My!), was having a challenge this week and we had to use ribbon as our inspiration for the card. Well, HELLO.....Look at this gorgeous ribbon! I'm just a little crazy for plaid and when I saw this ribbon at Wal-Mart, I went wild - I bought several rolls of it! (I noticed this week, they have more in.....YES!) The colors just scream "Fall" and this stamp set is a perfect match for it.

I used Old Olive, So Saffron, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip paper. I inked up the pheasant with Chocolate Chip and colored him with markers. The "wheat" in the background was stamped in So Saffron. I did a little masking, sponging, and paper piercing on this card.

Thanks for stopping by..............

the ribbon is just wonderful - the card is pretty good too. Autumn in Spring is good as you are now prepared for Thanksgiving in November all you need now is to make your pumpkin pie nearer the time! best wishes Lesley

I was just looking at this set last night! I have had it sitting in my studio for far too long and just never inked it up. Thanks for some wonderful inspiration. Your card is lovely; the colors are great and that ribbon is perfect with it!
