Warm Fall Wishes


It's time for a new challenge at Festive Friday where every challenge is an inspiration list based on a selected holiday/festivity from the traditional to the unusual. Challenge projects must include at least three items from the festivity inspiration list.

Since the Inspiration List is a mix of elements related to the festivity, the creator has the choice to make something for that festivity, or to ignore the festivity all together and create something using just the three (or more) elements selected.

For my Fall-themed project, I used: leaves, gold, green, brown, and (faux) stitching. I used a variety of Distress Oxide Inks and sprays to create a panel of fall colors from which I die cut the leaves and sprigs. I arranged them on the gold circle and added the bow and embossed sentiment strip.

Supplies Used:
Paper: Neenah Solar White 80#, SU More Mustard, Brushed Gold, Early Espresso, Black
Ink: Various Distress Oxide inks, Heidi Swapp Sprays
Dies: Pinkfresh Studio Dainty Blossoms, Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Standard Circles, Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves, Paper Smooches Baby Bow, Pink and Main Sentiment Strips, Altenew Dotted Swirls

I'm also playing at:

Beautiful leaves and color palette. The stitching reminds me of a blustery Autumn day. That little bow makes me so very happy!
