September 23 is the first day of Fall! Are you as excited as I am? This past summer was a hot one, and I am so looking forward to the cooler temperatures and all of the fun that is in FALL!
At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. For my card today, I chose leaves, acorns, stitching, gold, green, and brown.
I looked through my unfinished projects box and found this lovely woodgrain paper (unknown manufacturer), and that's where I started! Then I pulled out these fabulous rustic country leaf and acorn dies by Impression Obsession, and used several colors of cardstock, including gold shimmer, for the dies.
I chose a sentiment from one of my Unity Stamp Co. kits, added some gold metallic thread, and a few gold baubles for sparkle! The underlying panel is the same gold shimmer as the leaves and acorn, and the card base is Crumb Cake from Stampin' Up!
this challenge! Remember, you can choose any three from the list, for any occasion or theme! The challenge is open until September 14th!
