This is a great card for my brother-in-law's birthday (other than being a few days late) as well as for the Little Red Wagon fall challenge.
I found a leftover fall wreath from last year that didn't get used because I stamped the berries in Early Espresso and didn't like the effect. I covered them with Gold Dazzling Details last week but I still didn't really know what to do with it. Then I noticed the leftover die-cut "you" and thought they might work together with Rita's Freshly Made sketch. I added a leftover die-cut border (it's really the off-cut) for the Seize the Birthday challenge; now this will be going to a dear friend next month:
stamp sets - Crazy About You, Wondrous Wreath; ink - Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, So Saffron; card stock - Very Vanilla, Champagne Glimmer (retired), Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Crumb Cake; Big Shot with Decorative Dots embossing folder, Wonderful Wreath, Hello You and Banners framelits, and Tasteful Trim die (retired); Dazzling Details - Gold; Crystal Effects
The "you" seemed a little bland on all that glitter, especially since the gold Dazzling Details doesn't match the
gold Champagne Glimmer Paper, so I covered it in Crystal Effects to make it shiny.
Earlier this month I used some leftover die-cut label shapes for this card, which was inspired by Bev's photo at the Watercooler Challenge:
stamp sets - Wetlands, World of Dreams; ink - Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum; Stampin' Write Markers - Garden Green, Rich Razzleberry; card stock - Perfect Plum, Whisper White; Big Shot with Chalk Talk framelits
I was kind of pleased with the hand-colored flowers, but I totally spaced on posting the card, so I hope no one minds too much if I post it for Marsha's Anything Goes challenge, instead!
