This week's challenge at Creative Knockouts is to make a project with the theme Happy Fall. I know that I'm supposed to be the scrapbooker over there, but this week I've brought you a card. It just doesn't feel like fall yet for me. It's odd, I know it's October, but the weather has been pretty warm, and I haven't spent much time outside to see the changing leaves, so I haven't made that switch. Since I'm still in a bit of a summery mindset, I haven't been doing any autumn activities with my family yet. No fall activities = no fall pictures = a card for my challenge project this week. Maybe you'll see a layout next week.
Now that I'm done with that tangent, let me introduce you to this week's sponsor Doodle Pantry. They have a ton of adorable images in their store. I work better with inanimate objects than people and animals, so I chose a collection of fall leaves that they have in the store called "Lively Leaves" it comes with 5 separate images of leaves, several leaf clusters, and 4 fall themed sentiments. I decided to print my 3 favorite leaves and color them with my Derwent watercolor pencils, blending with water and distressing the edges with Distress Ink.
I used papers from my October Counterfeit Kit to make this card, just adding the button, embroidery floss, and metal accents from my stash.
I hope you like the card. Let me know what you think! While you're here, use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter a giveaway for a custom 20-page scrapbook project from my scrap 4 hire site www.ScrappingTheRainbow.com.
