Hello Fall

Good morning!! Back to work today after the long weekend….but it was a great break, visiting with friends, baking, and lots of time to craft!  I was browsing through my digi files….I may have a bit of an addiction….and found this image by Holly Durr (in the file titled “Holly Durr”  – go figure).  Sadly, Holly has closed her digi shop down, so she can concentrate on other areas of her art….I’m so thankful that I found her before it closed, and was able to scoop up a few of her images!!! I think I may have mentioned on a previous post that I was done with fall/autumn cards….well, here’s one more….I could’t resist printing this beauty on Kraft and coloring her up with my Prismacolor pencils 🙂  I cut the image out with a Nellie Snellen nesting die, then inked the edges with Distress Ink.  I found this fab sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and decided to use it for the layout 🙂

I embossed a piece of brown CS for the background, then started messing about, trying to figure out the other elements.  The scribbly circles are cut with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die, and the “hello” was cut twice, to make a shadow,  I also heat embossed the top “hello” with gold.  I played around with so many embellies and die cuts, but couldn’t find anything else that looked right….Off to the dark corners of the craft room, to find something that I forgot I had….and it worked!!! I found a package of these vellum fall leaves….fit the bill perfectly 🙂  This is seriously my last fall card for the year….maybe 😀

I’d like to enter this into the following:

  2. Your weekend sound scrumptious! Crafting and baking with friends, just lovely. After all of that, you had time to color up this lovely and intricate design. The addition of the leaves really adds to the whole design and brightens it up. Thanks for sharing this with us at the Mod Squad Challenge. Good luck and hope to see you again.
