Challenge 101

The Colors of Autumn

Iulia has provided us with a picture of a gorgeous flower bouquet as inspiration for Mo's Challenge this week. 

I've used Mo's image of this daring young man called...what else?..."Dare"! I've paired him with some digital images of old fashioned elements and used colors from Iulia's inspiration photo. 

Beautiful, isn't it?! Fall is my favorite time of year here in New England...the colors of the leaves are just so amazing, and our scenery is breath-taking!

Images: "Dare" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Sundial from Beyond the Fringe Crafts, Pocket watch from the Graphics Fairy, Antique book (unknown), Saying from Sentimental Sundays

Tools: Copics, Gold gel pen, Cuttlebug with Embossing folder and Nestie oval, Mounting tape, Tacky tape, Ink pad, Sponge dauber

Papers: SU! Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi, Dusty Durango, Neenah smooth white

Embellishments: Twill tape

I hope you'll join us in Mo's Challenge this week. We'll be looking forward to seeing your fall creations using one of Mo's great images!

Thanks for visiting!

Elaine this is a fantastic card. I love your coloring and then all of the elements you've used with your sentiment.

I was wondering if you would mind if I "scrap-lifted" your card design and title for your anniversary card of the older couple at the carnival. I think that would be great for a couple of anniversary cards I have coming up.

Thanks, dj1952 (Debra)
