World Card Making Day

There were so many fun challenges this past weekend for World Card Making Day it was hard to keep up. I started off on SCS Saturday with challenges only to come to a screeching halt because I couldn't get them to upload to the gallery!! How frustrating! I've never had that happen before. Be ready over the next couple of days I figured I would post them instead to my blog. This one is for the Verve challenge -- it was a color challenge, using the world flag colors as your inspiration. I chose the flag of Sri Lanka - red, yellow, green and orange. Perfect fall colors!!! The pumpkins came from the Verve Stamps set called Tall Oaks. I used my copic markers on them then sponged with a little creamy caramel. The sentiment was punched out with the wide oval punch and also sponged with the caramel. The image and words were then popped up for that dimension I love! The left side of the card needed a little something so I ran some crooked lines of stitching down it. And of course I had to add some brads, ruby red ones. The DSP is from the Autumn Traditions pack and layered with crushed curry. The card base is always artichoke and layered with old olive and river rock embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. My youngest, Kevin, had to add the pumpkin he picked out from the hay ride he went on the other day -- a perfect addition, don't you think?!!

The sun is out, but the temperature is a bit cool. I'm still going to hang my laundry up outside. I love how it smells when it's dry, especially the sheets!! Hopefully I can find some stamping time. Have a great Monday!
