Two cards posted in one day...amazing! I wanted to get it entered into one of the challenges and it's done earlier than I thought. Yeah, I'm definitely not time oriented...I'm task oriented! Wish I had an equal dose of both! Today's card is a special thank you to my parents for letting us use their house up north for the weekend for a fall color tour and Christmas card stamping weekend. :) It's wonderful to have a place to stay that doesn't cost a small fortune for the weekend! I've kind of had the idea for this card in my mind for a bit and finally sat down and made it. Of course I wanted fall leaves since that was one of the reasons we headed north. :) It also happens to go with a few challenges out there...
Less is More - Week 90 - Theme AUTUMN
Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge 140 - Inked Embossing Folder
The Paper Players 118 - Frames
For my inked embossing folder I actually did the reverse of what is normally done. I wanted my frame highlighted, so I used my Stampin' Write marker to color in the depressed part (if that's even a word!) instead of using the brayer on the raised part of the folder. It didn't color the frame completely, but I really liked the vintage look it gave the frame so I left it like that. :)
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
