Words2ScrapBy #9


The challenge for the Words2ScrapBy #9 challenge is "To everything there is a season." It reminded me of the changing seasons happening right now, with summer slowly fading away and autumn coming in with cooler temps and all the beautiful colors of falling leaves. I used a SU! retired Trendy Trees stamp for the images, placing each one on some alternating colored tag punches. I used a piece of kraft that was embossed with an autumn leaves design, and sponged it with antique linen. I matted that with dark brown and added a panel of dsp from the BoBunny autumn paper pad, and added another strip of dsp from the pad for the lower border. The ribbons are all assorted snippets from my stash, while the sentiment is by MFP. The embossed gold flowers were done with a SU! mini punch, and I added some golden Geo Sparkler stickers to the centers.

I'll be sharing this over at the Snippets Playground #145 when the gates open again later today. I just missed the fun by a few hours this week (again!)

Thanks for stopping by and make this a great day!!

The seasons really are changing a little! We were down to 65 here this morning - but suppose to be back in the 90's on Monday. The weather just doesn't know what to do with us!
LOVE your card though and that cute way to use the Trendy Tree set. Great embossing and sponging.

Your trees looks so pretty and colorful against that embossed Kraft. Super design.
It sure feels like Fall at my house this morning and a great day for football. That's where we're heading a bit...Go Bama!
I wanted to let you know I'm taking some time away from my blog. Sis is coming for a visit.

I love it! I think it was some of your cards that made me go to ebay and find the Trendy Trees set. I love autumn. It hasn't shown up here yet.
