The Autumn Leaves - CCMC HOL2

This past week over at the Holiday Edition of Create with Connie and Mary we have featured the fall stamp sets, papers, and accessories in the Holiday Season Catalog.  Wow, they have all been gorgeous and rich with color and style.  I have said it before "it's never too late to join and you too can see all the projects and tutorials."  We have finished two weeks with three more to go--that's 30 tutorials all geared to the upcoming holidays.

Today we have a BEAUTIFUL color combo challenge.  Pop over to Create with Connie and Mary and see what the designers have created incorporating More Mustard, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso, and Raspberry Ripple.  I have included a panel of Orchard Harvest DSP on an Early Espresso base for my card's background.  I ran it through the Framed Tulips TIEF and then gave it a quick sanding.  For my focal point I layered up the "Hello" greeting from Friendship Preserves with the Window Frames Collection Framelits.  Every fall card needs some crinkly leaves strung in a garland--so that's what I added to finish up this festive cutie.

  1. Oh this is beautiful, Elizabeth! Love the strung garland! Amazing that our minds were on similar wavelengths this week! Great job with the color challenge!

  2. Strung & textured leaves - LOVE this! Goes well with the distressed look of the embossed edges!
