PPA Fall Inspiration

Taking a break tonight from sharing Open House samples and instead sharing a card I created for the Pals Paper Inspiration challenge of the week. Here is the inspiration photo


And here is what I came up with.


The picture shows many colors, but the Vanilla, Brown, Green & Gold to me said Old Olive, Early Espresso, More Mustard and Naturals Ivory. Makes you want to grab a sweater doesn't it?? And the sweater also made me think texture, so I tried another background similar to the card done HERE over the weekend. And of course I had to use the French Foliage set!! Card base is Olive. Background is Naturals Ivory stamped with leaves in Early Espresso, Old Olive & More Mustard, and splatter dots in River Rock. The edge was sponged with River Rock, then the entire piece textured in the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Across the center I put a wide Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, then the Victoria Crochet Trim. I added a second piece of Victoria and attached an Antique Brad through the ribbons.  The saying is from the Level 3 Hostess set, Occasional Quotes. It was stamped in Espresso on Naturals Ivory.  I added a light Olive & Mustard leaf (after stamping off once) and River Rock splatter dots.  That's it!

I will pop back in tomorrow with supplies used.  It's getting late and I'm working tomorrow (after almost a week off!), better get some zzz's!

Very Cool! The idea to add the texture to symbolize sweaters was genius :)
