Craftin Desert Diva's #15 - Anything Autumn

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! Just a few days left before I leave for vacation and I am nowhere near ready...hopefully I will be by Friday :)


My Design Team term doesn't start until October 28, but today I am posting as a guest designer for the Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas. Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!

This linky party theme is Anything Autumn. The sponsors are Cardz TV - Stamp set of choice, Robins Nest - $10 gift card, and KaDoodle Bug Designs - $15 gift card. The more you link up, the better chance you have to win. Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

Here is what I created for this linky party....


The base of the card is Kraft cardstock, followed by Heavyweight white cardstock from Canvas Corp. It was inked with Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress Ink. The leaves, branches and acorns were cut from TH's Autumn Gatherings die The edges were inked with Walnut Distress Ink.


The sentiment panel was inked with Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey and Fired Brick Distress Inks. The sentiment is from TH's Thankful Silhouettes stamp set.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Little Scrap Pieces - Linky Party
  2. Funday Friday #17 - Autumn 
  3. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - September Anything Goes

  35. My sweetest friend, this is sheer Autumnal beauty! :o) The design is so smart... each panel plays off the other so beautifully, yet stands on its own perfectly! I love the contrast of the chunky leaves and acorns alongside the inked/stamped masterpiece. It just works so gorgeously. Autumn's quintessential color palette couldn't be more stunningly portrayed than this, my dearest friend! (You make me use so many adverbs!) Exquisite creation once again. I hope everything is coming along for your vacation! I'll miss you oodles, but am thrilled for your blessed trip! :o) Have a lovely day, Lisa!

    Hugs and blessings!
