Fall Fun

Do you have paper or embellishments that you actually hate? 
Seriously, you may have bought something ages ago, and you liked it then, but now.... 

I gave myself an extra challenge this week by forcing myself to use paper I just don't like.

Since there are many fall challenges this week, I used the leaf patterned paper — the pattern is do dense, and the colors are dull. So I actually put vellum on top of it to give it a shimmery look. Then, I added several different patterns in fall colors to give the card some brightness. I cut two scalloped squares from my Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge, and added stickers, ribbon, and brads.

Thanks goes out to all the challenges with fall themes. Gave me inspiration to use this paper.

Crafter's Circle: use three embellishments.
Redd and Rosie: colors of autumn.
Simply Create Too: use orange.
Crafting with Dragonflies: nature, trees, and leaves.
Creative Belli: leaves
Divas By Design: autumn colors.
