All Seasons Sweet...

Hi All! And a very Happy Friday to you! Today I am back with a really quick post to share my latest creation, inspired by Cupcake's Creations CR84FN #39, they had such Fabulous Fall colors colors this week, also Mojo Monday's Terrific Sketch# 208, and Dolce Stamps & Cards Challenge #2, Fall colors.. 8-)

And Here's my take on the Lovely Fall colors inspiration and sketch... 8-)


I stamped  a couple of my BG pieces using Impression Obsession's CAC Music stamp onto some white CS from my stash and then shaded it up with a bit of Antique Linen Distress ink and then added even more distressing with my Ranger Snow Cap paint dauber. The rest of my mats and BG panels were made with a combination of kraft CS form my stash and dp's from Basic Grey.  My Lovely fall leaves were  stamped using Impression Obsessions Maple Leaf stamp with with three different Distress Inks, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey and Vintage Photo and then I  fussy cut them out and popped them up with a few dimensionals. My Impression Obsession Sentiment from their Count Your Blessings Clear Set was stamped Directly onto my BG with Memento Rich Cocooa. And to finish it all up, I just added a Pretty Prima flower topped off with a Sweet MME brad.Pretty easy peasy, huh... 8-)

Oops, I almost forgot to show you the inside.. lol  This is actually a Card / Gift Card Holder...

 

Hope you all have a Wonderful Day & thanks so much for dropping in! 

Thanks for stopping by!
