Season of Change
Today it was my turn to post on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog. My last 2 blog posts I have done cards that I have titled "frame it". See those posts here and here.
I love taking a sentiment stamp and use dies, embossing folders, patterned paper and ribbon to frame the card. So I decided to continue with that theme again this month.
I used the cuttlebug embossing folder "scroll works" to frame the sentiment from the new set "season of change". This set was just released this month. It even has a matching die. I love the versatility of this set.
Instead of patterned paper I chose metallic card stock in chocolate and cream. I punched some leaves from copper metallic paper and added a few rhinestones for a little bling.
My ribbon is some that I recycled from a fall wedding shower a few years ago. I liked the coppery shimmer and the fall words printed on it. I thought it worked great with my card today.
Well, that's it for me today so until next time God bless................
Some other challenges:
1. The Outlawz blog has a challenge to make your own embellishments. I punched my copper leaves.
2. Allsorts challenge blog has a "you've been framed challenge. My exact theme for this card.
3. Challenge up your life blog has a no patterned paper challenge.
