Thankful Fall Flower


Hi there!  I'm popping in with another two for one challenge post.  I'm playing along with the inspiration picture at Curtain Call and with the Happy Fall, Y'all challenge at The Paper Players.  We don't have leaves changing colour here and it doesn't feel particularly fall like just yet but I was inspired by all the gorgeous reds and oranges and yellows in both the photos.  I dusted off an unused WPlus9 die and created a fall coloured flower. I cut some extra "petals" to use for leaves and added a thankful sentiment which seemed appropriate for a fall card.  That's it for me now.  Hope you all have a wonderful day!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Calm & Gentle) Cas-ual Fridays 
Ink:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Super Fine Opaque Bright White) Wow
Dis:  (Quilt Cuts 1) WPlus9
Gems:  Recollections

Hi Jen...my goodness but your comments have added sunshine and sparkle to my day! Thank you! Your card here - sheer delight with the lovely autumn colours and inlaid dies. Soooo pretty! I live in Canmore, Alberta, Canada, and yes, we have crazy winter weather happening now!

Love the simplicity. I'm expecting partridges, ala the partridge family, to waddle across

Ooh, pretty! And perfect for fall... even though, really? I don't like fall -- winter comes next! :P

Love the "fallness" of your card, Jen. The flower reminds me of those ink pads shaped like that. I've always thought they looked like flowers.
