Grateful for Fall
I was proud of myself for getting the picture of this card taken today, with natural sunlight - and got ready to upload it just now and realized that my "Grateful" sentiment had fallen off and not made it into the pic. So, that will explain why you have two pictures of this card (and why one is much better than the other!). The stamp is from the fall release of Whiff of Joy stamps - I think Willow is just so sweet to color. I used the sketch from WoJ Challenges this week for this card. I had several sources of inspiration for the colors that I used - 1. I scraplifted the palate from a card at Cuttlebug Challenge (Beth Ulman's card), 2. The Copic Color Challenge was to use olive, amethyst and orange 3. The color challenge at Gingersnap was to use orange, green, brown. I learned how to make this tissue paper flower from the JUGS challenge (although I had a different flower nestibility) and handmade flowers are becoming my favorite embellishment (so this card is great for the Incy Wincy challenge of the week). The challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ was to make a card that expressed gratitude. Not only does my sentiment say "grateful", but I loved the way that Willow has her arms stretched up toward heaven, in a grateful pose. Thanks for letting me get a bunch of challenges with this card!
