Wow! I can hardly believe that I have actually gotten to 100 posts! I didn’t even want a blog a few short months ago… now, I’m so happy I have one! I love being able to share my creations, my kids, my thoughts…all of these things with you! Here’s to the next 100!!!So I have been wanting to make this card for a certain someone for weeks now. Really. Weeks. I just didn’t want to do it in October, as I was focusing more one Halloween. I thought that this card would be better suited for November, as I am very thankful for this person. Plus, she’s not really in to the Halloween thing, so I wanted to make sure I gave this to her well after the Holiday. Plus, it just so happens to fit right in to TWO challenges that I’ve seen this week!The first challenge was with The Pink Elephant Challenge #39. The challenge was to use Brown, Yellow, Neutral and Color of your choice. Cool. I’m in. The second was with Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC40). You needed to use a colored in image, texture and neutrals. Perfect! This is exactly what I wanted to use for this card! Ok, so I do have more than one added color in the wreath, which may not be perfectly in line with The Pink Elephant challenge, but I think it still works. I LOVE this stamp. It’s from Inkadinkado. I colored the wreath in with my fantastic Berol colored pencils. I embossed the image, adds a little texture and makes coloring the image a bit easier too! I used the “Fabric” texture plate from Fiskars on my Prism cardstock. It reminds me of burlap, which I love for the Fall. And of course I needed to add some fun and fabulous fiber! I love using eyelash yarn. It adds so much dimension, but keeps things soft and wispy. Now, I’m off to write out the inside and send it to the recipient. I’ll let you know who it’s for once she gets it! Have a beautiful, and inspired day!
