Color Trends Challenge: Leaves and Card Patterns 142

Hi bloggies! Happy Thanksgiving! I'm a little late, but I was asleep most of Thanksgiving so I'm posting this one late. While I was away on vacation I noticed that my posts were mainly made up of my design team projects. I used to love joining online card challenges and had a card up almost everyday of the week. I'm going to try to do that once more.

For my first post since I've arrived, I've decided to combine two challenges: Embellish Magazine's Color Trends Challenge: Leaves and Card Patterns 142. And since I've totally missed out on Thanksgiving...I made a Thanksgiving card. But first here's the inspiration photo as well as the colors from Color Trends Challenge. And of course, the sketch from Card Patterns 142.


I used images from WPlus9 Season of Thanks for most of the elements on my card. I cut a panel of patterned paper from Basic Grey, I knew I had to use it when I was flipping over the pages of the pad. I stamped a big image from from Season of Thanks for my upper right panel. 

And instead of using a layered scalloped circle, I die cut this beautiful doily using a die from Papertrey Ink. Both the leaves and the sentiment are also from WPlus9's Season of Thanks

After stamping the leaves and sentiment, I hand cut them and inked the edges with some distress ink. I layered them one of top of the other with foam tape. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. Tomorrow is Black Friday and if you haven't heard, WPlus9 is having a one day sale! Have fun shopping and stay safe out there! Thanks for stopping by!
