Fall {Pin}Spiration

Hello my friends.  Don't you just love it when you get a post all done and then somehow you hit the wrong button and it's all gone!!!!!!  That's just what happened to me.  Darn!  I was just about finished and the little mouse went to the wrong place and deleted my whole blog post. So here I am redoing the whole thing.

This week at {Pin}spirational challenge our task was to create a card using this beautiful photo as our inspiration.

I love the Fall colors and I do miss them having grown up in the North, but now residing in the South.  We had a maple tree in our front yard of the house where I grew up.  It turned a brilliant bright yellow every  Fall.  Gorgeous!

For my card, I used the tree and colors as inspiration.  Here is my card.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Autumn Leaves - Stampology
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Marigold Morning and Pear Pizzazz
  • Designer Paper - Bo Bunny - Country Garden
  • Ink - Memento - Rich Cocoa
  • Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
  • Ribbon - My stash
  • Nestabilities - Classic Oval Die and Classic Scallop Die
  • Leaves - Martha Stewart Punch
  • Copic markers - 0; B0000, G0000, G12, G43
That's it!  Done.  Now you need to check out the rest of the Design Team.  You can find links to their blog on my left sidebar.  Once you do that, you need to create your own card using the above photo as your inspiration and then link up to the {Pin}spiration Challenge Blog and maybe you'll be the winner this week.
