Sassy Cheryl's challenge this week is Autumn Colors. I think just about everyone loves this time of year when the trees magically change colors and the air has a cool crispness that helps us to forget the heat of summer.
This "Country Gal" is saying farewell to one of her favorite summer critters, the ladybug. I used a bunch of odds and ends for this card. I figure if I use them up I won't feel so guilty when I indulge in something new! The covered brads are by Michael's Recollections. The green vine is a Martha Stewart border punch that I used on both edges of the strip of paper. I used a deckle rectangle Nestie to cut the image so continued the distressing on all the edges. I don't know why the photo is so dull, but the background paper is really a lovely yellow gold color.
The image is colored with Copics. Again, the photo is a bit dull but the colors are nice and autumnish. (spell checker didn't like that word!) I love this image; her floppy hat and her long skinny legs, which I NEVER had! She is a cutie!
I hope you all have had a great weekend and we able to get in some crafting. There's still time to get something done for Sassy Cheryl's challenge and, for sure, you'll want to see the fantastic projects by the design team. Thanks for stopping by today!
