Today's card just speaks of the colors of Autumn, my favorite time of year. I was thinking of a November Birthday when I created this as the birthstone for November is Topaz. My Dear Grandmother's Birthday was in November and she would have loved this card with it's warm topaz tones.
I have made this for four challenges today. The first is Opus Gluei which was to use sparkles. As you can see in my picture my flowers are just twinkling and I have 12 green rhinestones on this as well. The second challenge is The Cuttlebug Spot which was to create a Fall card. I love my cuddlebug and think I use it for every card I make. The corner treatments both inside and out of this card are from a cuttlebug die. The third challenge is High Hopes which was to make a Birthday Card. The fourth challenge was for The Pink Elephant which was to include a dots punch tag on your card.
These images are from Fred She Said. They are TOTALLY AWESOME...I kid you not. My card is made with the Yellow-A Lovely Blossom Just Flowers & Leaves. You can purchase these terrific digi stamps at Tracey's store here. I distressed inked them with tea dye ink because I wanted a warm fall tone. The squares behind the flowers are "wood cedar" paper. Yes, it even smells like the inside of my Lane Cedar Chest. I distressed inked the edges with just a touch of the tea dye ink. Isn't this terrific? You can get these wonderful papers at McMahon Five Designs. And, I saved up my allowance to get that classic lace border from spellbinders. lol
Here is the inside of my card. It made me think of my Grandmother today. If she was alive, I would have sent this too her.
Thank you for looking at my card today. I sure do appreciate your taking time to stop by for a visit. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I do cherish your words of encouragement.
