My autumn card today is being linked to several fun challenges, which all lined up the way we love them to do.
- Ardyth tells me that my card would work for this alliterative challenge: CASology's Cue Card Crisp:
- A fantabulous sketch by the very talented Jennifer T. over at Freshly Made Sketches:
- A color theme at Pals Paper Arts:
- And at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, we are to use a rubber or clear stamp:
I am also entering my card in Susan's Thanksgiving Crusade over at her blog Simplicity. Please make a note to link your gratitude and thanksgiving cards on the top tab at Susan's. There are no prizes or sponsors, but it is a great resource to find lots of beautiful Thanksgiving card inspirations in one place!
Here is my card:
The leaf was colored with markers directly to the stamp. I applied more ink by wrapping a Kleenex over my finger, inking it and pouncing the ink lightly in places. I then fussy cut the leaf, outlined it in Cajun craze, and adhered it to the card front with pop dots. It's really sheenilicious on that glossy paper, but you'll have to use your imaginarium to see it since the photo didn't captivate it.
I am thrilled and delighted to find that I have three new friends who arrived while I was away. Please meet:
Jenny Lawrence of CARDSARUS
Tracey Wilson of Scrappin Trackside
Gerrina Finie of Gerrina's Creative World

We are sitting the granddog Dukester this weekend for the kidlets. He seems to have grown since the last visit!
