PPA64

DSCF0001

I haven’t had a chance to play over at Pals Paper Arts, so I really strived to do it this week, since I got my lovely new set, French Foliage.  Here’s the inspiration photo they supplied:

PPA64

I wanted to capture the more subtle colors of fall, as well as the texture in the girl’s sweater and hat; not sure if I did that, as my card looks a little “blah” to me:

DSCF0002

I did some vintagey stuff, a la Ann, and used the colors So Saffron, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Pear Pizzazz.  I ran a piece of Elegant Soiree through the Square Lattice EF and roughed up the edges.  The sentiment from Falling Leaves was stamped on a diecut tag, and I added a Vintage Brad and some trim.  Thanks for visiting today and have a great weekend!

  • Stamps:  French Foliage, Falling Leaves

Morning LeAnne, Your card is super and you did a great job making it look like the subtle photo. It is gentle and sweet and I love the panel that looks like the sweater texture and the sentiment is really nice too!

Blessings and hugs, Martha

Doesn't look blah to me, either! You've captured the look in the photo perfectly, as well as the feel of Fall--and Fall is definitely not blah.
