Happy Fall Ya'll Card


I've got another fall themed card today.

This is for the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge Fall Colors.  The prize this week is some awesome paints from Creative Inspirations so be sure to enter for your chance to win :)

The base of the card is a chocolate brown color.

I added a 4 by 5 and 1/4 inch layer of patterned paper from the Autumn Splendor DCWV stack.  It's got some really shiny gold accents.

The leaves are cut at 3.5 inches from the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons Cricut Cartridge.  I inked around the edges of the leaves to give them a bit of depth, and added them to a kraft colored shadow.

I added some gorgeous Shabby Crinkled Ribbon from the Little Boo Collection.  It's from Prairie Bird Boutique.

For the finishing touch I hand cut a little banner in some cream colored cardstock and stamped "Happy Fall Ya'll" using a Pink By Design stamp from the Simply Everything.  I love hand making little banners for things these days.  I think I'm going a little overboard with that trend!  *LOL*

Make sure and head on over to Whimsical Wednesday to check out all the fabulous inspiration, and be sure to enter your own project for the chance to win some fabulous paint from Creative Inspirations
