Grateful For You!--PP364

October 1, 2017

 It is the first day of October!  This is my favorite month of the year.  It even feels a little like Fall in Atlanta, GA today!  The leaves are falling and there is a nice breeze.  

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

The amazingly talented Sandy is our hostess today.  An Autumn Floral theme is up this week!  I can't wait to see all of your beautiful entries! 

My card is created on Natural card stock.  I love the flecks of brown in this paper.  I cut the layers with the MFT Mod Rectangle Stax dies.  I sponged the edges with Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  The flowers and leaves were stamped with fall shades of ink using the MFT Fall Florals set.  The matching dies were used to cut out all the pieces.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.  A natural twine bow and some sequins were added.  Wink of Stella was used to create a shine on all of the gorgeous blooms and leaves.  

Don't forget to stop by all the DT members fantastic blogs for inspiration!  You won't be disappointed!

  1. I like the way you've sponged the edges on those funky rectangles. It accentuates the shapes and brings out the browns of your equally funky bouquet. The sequins add a touch of bling. It's a lovely creation, Claire. I think my favourites are the three orange stalks in the back.

  2. Love the contemporary and artsy interpretation of the challenge. Beautiful layout, subtle hint of bling and love the shape of the die cut frame too. Fabulous inspiration, thank you x

  3. Oh my, I love the retro/atomic look of this fall bouquet! The bounty of your arrangement is the look I tried to achieve and didn't have a stamp set to make it happen, gasp! You've interpreted the theme perfectly and I love the pop of purple. Great job, Claire!

  4. Claire I just love your rustic bouquet - all those fabulous little die cuts in wonderful autumnal colours. The sponged edges and twine definitely add to the country charm. Just lovely!

  5. So pretty Claire! I love the fall colors and the sponging. The rounded corners are a fun touch too.

    Have a great day!

  6. Love this...the flowers are beautiful and I think your sketch with the cool edges is wonderful! Very pretty and autumnal!

  7. What a gorgeous autumn bouquet, Claire! I love the colors and the shapes of your groovy flowers, and the twine bow adds just the right amount of texture. Fabulous take on the challenge, I love it!

  8. What a gorgeous autumn card and lovely autumn colors too!

  9. Beautiful colors used for your bountiful fall bouquet. I like the distressed rectangles too! Wonderful card, Claire!

  10. Claire, such gorgeous colors - they really remind me of fall. I also love how you distressed the edges of your card. It creates a great frame for your wonderful bouquet.

  11. Such a pretty card Claire! Love the beautiful fall floral arrangement! The subtle sponged edges add a nice touch! Thanks for the inspiration!

  12. This is so pretty Claire! I love the natural twine with all those rich colours!
