Creative Paper Trade - Fall Sweeties

Hi!

Burr,  fall is in full swing here in Northern Virginia! We still have a few leaves left on the trees.  But less and less. The theme at Creative Paper Trade is Fall Sweeties.
I started by adding a piece of textured blue patterned paper to my card base. A heart doily was misted  and inked to give it's custom color.   Sophie, from Paper Sweeties, was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink.  She was then colored in with Chalk and mineral spirits; hand-cut, and dressed in an outfit from Mahalo then adhered to the card front. 

A length of crochet trim was added to the lower portion of the card adding some beautiful blue buttons which have been laced with twine. And to finish my card, a sentiment from You Are Special was stamped onto a pennant banner and adhered to the upper left of the card front.

As mentioned, Inspiration for my card was found at Creative Paper Trade.


Well, that is it for me! Sorry so short. It's the short stack's birthday tomorrow, so I have quite a bit on my to do list. 

I am joining Paper Playtime - Autumn Colors

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
