Thinking Fall

I love this Thoughts and Prayers set and I don't believe I'd ever used it as a Fall card.  I'm sure someone's lovely card gave me the idea.

Last Friday's SCS Queen for the Day was Dawn and she had just challenged us to use paper blocks for the Free 4 All challenge at SCS.  When I toured Dawns delightful gallery, I noticed that she uses a lot of decorative paper on her cards.  Looking at her creations, I can't understand why using decorative paper scares me so.

But I am DP challenged and I have a stockpile of unused DP to prove it!

And the Friday Mashup challenge this week is to do an Autumnal card or a card with brads. Or to mash it up and do both.  I didn't use lots of brads like Lisa requested (and used on her beautiful card).  But I did get a couple on there.

And, the Color Challenge at SCS this week was to use More Mustard, Soft Suede and Tangerine Tango.  The brown panel (the one that looks navy) is Chocolate Chip.  It's not an exact match to Soft Suede, but it's pretty close.  These are such beautiful colors for Fall.  Unfortunately these colors didn't photograph very well.  The close up turned out so much better.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Thoughts and Prayers
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, SU Markers (Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Tangerine Tango)
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, Scraps of DSP
Other:  Brads

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I haven't had much computer time the past couple of days, but I have really enjoyed your comments and visiting your blogs when I had a minute.

Gorgeous card, Bonnie! I love the sentiment. It's a prayer many of us need these days. :-)

Hi Bonnie, you always manage to make such lovely CAS cards and this one is no exception. I really like the way you have made the individual leaves on the tree different colours.

Lovely to see you playing along with us again at the Friday Mashup.

Bonnie, the cards are sooooooooo pretty. You really got in some challenges, too. I like that set in the Fall colors you've used.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who is DP challenged! ANd yet, I just bought four new 12 x 12 DCWV pads at TJ Maxx that are gorgeous. I've got to work on this!

You've got a good idea there to use three different dps behind your image. THanks for the inspiration!
