The Paper Players #222

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

I have been dieing to get into my craft room and get my fingers inky! I saw a really cool Theme Challenge over at The Paper Players blog the other day http://www.thepaperplayers.blogspot.com/  and had to give it a try.

Here is their great Theme Challenge

and this is what I came up with;

This sketch was a lot of fun for me. I got to use all of my favorite Autumn colors on this card. This is our third Autumn in West Virginia and I just love Autumn. Being from CA we just don't get the changing of the seasons like we do here. The leaves on the trees really do come in a rainbow of color. I have to watch out when I drive because I am always oohing and awing at all the lovely trees. Autumn is such a beautiful time of year. I give thanks every day for our home our new friends and the really wonderful community that we live in.

Here is a look at the inside;

We are going to a friends house for Thanksgiving so I think I will give her this card and maybe make her a little hostess gift to go along with it! What do you think?

I used Mingle All The Way, Fall Fest and For All Things stamp sets. Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey, Mellow Moss, Crumb Cake, Wisteria Wonder and Blackberry Bliss Inks. I also used Blackberry Bliss, Naturals Ivory, Early Espresso and Mellow Moss Card Stock. The tag was made with the Chalk Talk Die, the two little pennants were made from a scrap of Color Me Autumn DSP. The Bows were made with Linen Thread and Burlap Ribbon. I added a few Autumn Wooden Accent Leaves and three Polka Dot s from the Regals Collection oh, and I used the Woodgrain Textured Impression Folder on the background piece.

I think that just about does it for this card. I hope you have a great day and find some time to create a card from this sketch. I know The Players would love to see it and so would I!

Chat soon,

Gorgeous fall leaves on your thank you card. I love the burlap and Autumn wooden elements too - they are some of my favourite embellishments and add the perfect finishing touch to your card. Thanks for playing along with our challenge over at The Paper Players this week!
