Tuesday Trigger: A Funky Fall & VSWCMD1

Thursday, October 7, 2010

I've got another, pretty card for you all.  So, if this is your first stop by my blog, today, please be sure to scroll down to my previous, Wee Memories Tutti Frutti Challenge & VSWCMD5 post.  Thanks!
I started this card by layering a strip of Old Olive cardstock near the left edge of a piece of tree, patterned paper and machine stitching it into place with white-threaded, straight stitches.
I, then, overlapped a strip of pink, striped, patterned paper over its right side and machine stitched it into place, with white-threaded, zig-zag stitches, running over onto the tree, patterned paper itself.
The "give thanks", sentiment block was stamped, in Pumpkin Pie ink, on a piece of white cardstock; framed with a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock; and adhered, overlapping the pink, striped, patterned paper, just above horizontal center, near the right edge of the tree, patterned paper, before the entire, prepped piece was adhered to the Summer Sun, cardstock, card face.
Finally, a length of seam binding ribbon, which was stained with Pink Bubblegum and Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mists, was wrapped around the card face; tied in a dressy bow; and embellished with stamped, in Summer Sun ink, glittered, and hand cut leaves.
My inspiration, for this card, came from Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger: A Funky Fall...
and Verve's World Card Making Day Release Week Challenges: Sketch 1.
Thanks, again, for stopping by my little corner of the web, and have a fabulous day!  Oh!  But before you go, I'm so, stinkin' excited, to tell you all, that I made Embellish's Paper Piecing Color Challenge What's Hot list for this creation.
AND you'll find that same creation up, with a layout of mine, on the Jenni Bowlin Studio blog, this week, because I'm their October Customer Spotlight Winner.  Yippeee!  Thank you so much, everyone!  I'm, completely, honored and, thoroughly, excited!
