O is for October's. . . .

golden hues.  The landscape around here is full of bright gold colors in the fields, on the ground and on the trees, mixed with all the other autumn hues. 

This card was made for the October CCC and sent to Barbara in Florida.  It features a Tim Holtz Sizzix leaf die colored with Tsukineko's Delicata gold ink pad.  The background panel was made using a mix of distress inks and outlined with a Pilot gold pen.  Some gold sequins with tiny clear gems for embellishments.

I am entering this in the Simon Says Monday challenge and Virginia's View clean and simple challenge.

Thanks for your visit!

a fall scene. . . .

created with a Stampendous stamp for my son's birthday next week. 

The photo does not show the true colors of the distress inks used.  It is much prettier IRL. (the sun is not bright red, it is a pretty orange and the green along the bottom is not as washed out as it looks in this photo).   I die cut the image with the Mama Elephant femme frames and layered to some orange cardstock.

Enjoy your day!

clean and simple. . . .

for Virginia's View challenge #8. 

Another dandelion card:

Made from a leftover panel that I was experimenting with for another card.  I like this one better than the first card I made.  :)   White embossed images with distress inks applied over them.  The dandelion was stamped behind the panel on the card base.  Words are from Tim Holtz.

Have a great day!
