Square Hello

Chrissy is hosting this week at Little Red Wagon and she is giving us the choice between square and rectangle.

I chose square.

I'm really loving this shade of purple.

I also used a embossing folder from Cuttlebug called Oxford, a flower die from The Greetery and a Hello die from Simon Says Stamp.

Remember to have some fun today!

Hugs, Doni

Happy Fall

Hi! I'm glad you stopped by my blog today. 

Here in Ohio the weather is still warm and the leaves have not yet began to color, however it is September and I'm looking forward to those beautiful fall days. That has inspired me to make this card today.

I started by blending some fall color distress inks...lots of them, I got a little carried away, but that's all good because now I have a great stash of blended paper to use on other projects. I chose a rather subdued spot to die cut this maple leaf.(Honey Bee Stamps - Honey cuts). Then I popped it up using  4 dark brown leaves layering them all together)  Next came the background which looks like tree bark thanks to a Tim Holtz embossing folder made by Sizzix. To finish this was all adhered to a cream colored card base (A2 size).

Entering in the following:
