Bloggers Challenge - Cardboard
Do you have any plans this weekend? We will have a family gathering Saturday night with some aunts, uncles and cousins that I haven't seen in a while. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone and catching up.
Today's post is for the bloggers challenge. Our challenge was 'cardboard.' I had some used up cheez it boxes and poptart boxes that I decided to reuse for this challenge. I put them through the cuttlebug with my nestie die and got this adorable mat layer for under my wheelbarrow image. I had just gotten my new SU spice paper and this SU stamp from the holiday mini and I love this fall themed card that came out. I decided to only color some of the image. Pale Sepia is a great copic marker color - it works for many things and it looks great on these pumpkins. I actually fussy cut the wheelbarrow so it would fit in it's entirety on the mat layer. I popped it up with dimensionals to add a little additional visual image. There is a layer of more mustard ribbon over a scallop edge at the meeting point of the two spice cake papers. I plan to use this as my thank you card for my Aunt who is hosting our dinner. I think I'll also make a few more of these for thanksgiving.
I hope you all enjoy your weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
