Fall Card Exchange

A great girl, Anita, over at the Hero Arts Flickr site, organised a Fall Card exchange.  A total of 46 people signed up to make a card for someone else, the theme being fall!  And hooray for me, I got to make one for Anita herself!

Although I should be talking Christmas right now, I just found that this post had been sitting in my draft folder for some reason.  So, while I am still looking for my Mojo which is somewhere out there, I thought I would share this card with those of you who have not seen it yet.

Here is my card which I had great fun making as I had just received my Bloom Builders #3 die from PTI and it went perfectly with what I had in mind!

Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (K & Co.)
Ink: HA Chalk Ink Latte; Vintage Photo DI
Stamps: HA (Small Open Flower CG250); PTI Tiny Tags
Other: Gems (Hero Arts); Button (old stash); PTI Large Scalloped Die; PTI Bloom Builders #3 Die

I really like how this card turned out.  I love the colours and the beautiful patterned paper!  And I adore that flower and I think I will be using it a lot.  And how awesome that it compliments the Small Open Flower from Hero Arts perfectly!

Thank you for visiting!  It promises to be a lovely cool morning for some serious running with my friends tomorrow! Wishing you a wonderful day!

Bet Anita loves this card, Bren - it is beautiful!

I've been struggling with my mojo too - hoping the scramble tomorrow helps. Hugs! :)

This really is a beauty Brenda :)
It's one of those you almost hate to send away!! LOVE that flower die as much as you do- it's gorgeous!

Beautiful fall colours, Brenda! That die works perfectly with the Hero Arts bloom. I love the different coloured gemstones, too! Hope you find your mojo soon... maybe that run will help. :D

Oh Brenda I agree with you, the PTI bloom buliders and your Hero Arts flower are wonderful together! Very pretty card :)
