Gettin' Thankful....

Hey there!!! Wow... October is gone and November is here!! Time is flying by... in just over a month I'm going to be one year older, too!!! (Yikes... not tellin' how many years it is, though. teee heee!)




Anyway... I have two cards that I'm sharing today.  Both cards use the same layout from CAS-ual Fridays, but each uses a slightly different color combo.   The first card will also be entered into the following challenges:  The Paper Players - Anything Goes Fall and Stampin Sisters in Christ - use fall colors (crimson, orange & gold).   The stamps are from Heartfelt Creations (Open Falling Leaves) and PTI (Autumn Elegance).  I stamped the leaf using the new Distress Ink Bundled Twigs and then applied Wild Honey and Fired Brick distress inks.  The leaf was trimmed out and some Art Glitter in Inca Gold was added.  The ribbon is Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler seam binding.  The sentiment was stamped using Golden Gitz and Cherry Cobbler inks.   Some small brads from BasicGrey were added at the bottom.



The second card is for this week's color challenge at Splitcoaststampers (Alway Artichoke, More Mustard & Bravo Burgundy) was made in the same matter I just used Scattered Straw and Aged Mahogany distress inks on the leaf.  The sentiment was stamped in a different spot using Stampin Up! Bravo Burgundy and then a row of gems that I colored using a Copic marker (Y17) was added.  The ribbon is Stampin Up! Always Artichoke seam binding.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler; PTI:  Kraft; Vintage Cream & White; Stamps:  Heartfelt Creations & PaperTrey Ink; Inks:  Distress Inks; SU! Bravo Burgundy & Cherry Cobbler; Ribbon:  SU! Seam Binding; Gems; Brads

Gorgeous Rosie, I love the colours of first one as I love the warm earthy tones, the green ribbon in the second gives a different effect and is cool against your warm tones of the golden ochres on the leaf.
But both cards are beautiful.

Both cards are gorgeous, Rosemary! Love the sparkle on your maple leaves, and how both cards look so different when using different color combos, but equally as beautiful.

Hope you're having a wonderful day :)
