Let Our Lives Be Full of Both Thanks & Giving--PP #312

September 11, 2016

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

This week the multi-talented LeAnne is our lovely hostess this week.  Her color challenge is all about Fall!  We know the weather is still hot, but we are hoping these colors make your think about cooler days, leaves, warm fires and Fall fun.  We can't wait to see what you create!  

My care is created on a Cajun Craze card base.  Crushed Curry paper was cut using the new Harlequin Cover Plate by SugarPea Designs.  I attached it to the front of the card base.  I added some of the argyle pieces back in the die cut.  A Very Vanilla circle was cut using the Zig Zag Stitched Circle Dies.  I sponged some Momento Cocoa ink on the edges.  The new stamp set Lovely Leaves by SugarPea Designs was used for the sentiment and leaves.   Pear Pizzazz ink was used on the small leaves.  Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze ink was used on the larger leaves.  I small linen thread bow was added to each leaf with a glue dot.  Wink of Stella was used on the leaves.  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.

  7. So pretty Claire. I love the Harlequin (argyle) background in these colors. Very warm looking indeed! Great dimension with the leaves and the little twine bows are the perfect touch.
