Designer Challenge, My Creative Time

It's time for the new designer challenge. Today's designer is Cheryl, who has challenged us to make a fall themed project using the colors in this sample. I love fall and fall colors and had fun with this challenge. We hope you'll join us for this fall color challenge and link up at the MCT blog. See link on the sidebar to the right ---------------------------------------------------------------->>>>>>

Here is your color palette:

I had something completely different than this in mind when I tried to plan my project for today. Now, truth be told, I very very rarely "plan" any of my projects and even if I try they never turn out as "planned"....I'm a "seat of my pants" kind of crafter. LOL What happened is, I picked out some super cute ribbon with these colors in it with every intention of using it. Uhhh. Fast fwd to "the planned project". My ribbon never made it past the checkout!! I checked every bag and then went through my receipt.....she didn't even scan it! I told you it was she kept it for herself! hahaha!! Therefore, no cute ribbon on my card today. But I WILL get that ribbon next time I'm at the store again. Sheesh.

So, be that as it may, here is my card. I love these paper colors. These are from October Afternoon, 8x8 paper pad, Witch Hazel.

Banners, flag and sentiments by My Creative Time. Stamped border on the left from the Build a Banner kit also by My Creative Time.

Attached with foam tape for dimension. I ♥ foam tape!

Pumpkin also on foam tape, wire added between layers cuz that's how I roll. Button and twine embellishment.

And there you have it! A completely unplanned (as usual! LOL) fall color card with yummy My Creative Time goodies!!! Thanks for stopping.

  1. Your card is fabulous and awesome. Gosh I so love your paper and all of your embellishments. You did a great job wit all of Emma's goodies and even tho your ribbon didn't make it your twine works ever so perfect. Your story is really funny. You have a great sense of humor.
    You are just so clever and talented.

  2. Beautiful card, love that paper.

  3. Trying to picture multi color cute ribbon on this card. The brown hemp triple bow with button works great. wonderful card.
