Season of Change

Happy Monday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We have just returned from a week at the beach. We went to Topsail Beach in North Carolina with friends. I am all rested and relaxed and ready to get back to creating.

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.
