CASology 63 Guest Designer

DSCF8155

Hello again, peeps!  A second post for me today!  Well, last week was my lucky week!  I had this card chosen as a winner for the CASology 61 challenge, as well as this one as an honorary mention for the ART 14 challenge and this one  for the Kraft Journal Make it Monday challenge!  I am so blessed!  So the lovely designers at CASology asked me to be the guest designer today!  And here is the cue:

Who doesn’t love autumn?  I think it is just about my favorite season…I am so drawn to the natural hues, and decorating for the season is one of my favorite pasttimes!  So I had a hard time narrowing down which autumnal image to use---I have SO many!  But I love this twig wreath from PTI, so I went with it:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings CASology 63 Autumn Wreath

I stamped it on Very Vanilla in Chocolate Chip, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie.  I didn’t have any twine dark enough to match my wreath, so I just “dyed” some SU linen thread with a brown Copic marker!  Perfect match!  To hide the thread on the inside, I matted my card on an Early Espresso card base and added this to the inside:

I hope you’ll pop over to the CASology blog and show us your CAS autumn cards too!  Toodles!

Well, congratulations on another "win". I love this CAS Autumn card. Love the way you have the wreath hanging with the twine and the bow. I have always like this PTI set. You've showcased it wonderfully.

Congrats on GD. And how perfect that it comes at your favorite time of the year! (Mine too!) I love this wreath - it's so sweet and simple and using just the twine to tie it up is a perfect touch!
