Kraft Outlet Challenge #37

If you go to the Kraft Journal,
you'll see that the challenge for this week is "Welcome Fall". Now I ask you, "Who doesn't love fall"? After all, it is the best time of the year, right?


I made this card with a base of
Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock from Kraft Outlet. I love the heavy weight of this paper and the warm tones of the brown. It combined perfectly with product from my Country Farm Stand Kit and Graphic 45's Le Cirque "Bohemian Floral" paper. I used the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the edges.


 The florals are: I Am Roses and 
Recollections. I punched a few oak leaves using my Martha Stewart punch and a scrap of the Brown Kraft CWC. I painted the curly roses and the gardenia with Folk Art's Metallic Champagne acrylic paint for a little shine.


From my kit: Girls' Paperie Tinsel & 
Twig Chipboard Alphabets, Tim Holtz Fanciful Buttons, Webster's Pages Spring Market "Gardener's Seeds" and "Market Menu", Pink Paislee's Old School "Curriculum".
From my stash: Darice Natural Hemp Cord in black.


The dies were cut with Spellbinder's
Lacey Circles and Large Circles. I cut two of these images from the WP Spring Market DP. The pumpkin was stamped with a Sweet 'N Sassy stamp and black Archival Ink onto a scrap of ivory cardstock. It's colored with Distress Inks... Peeled Paint for the stem. I had to mix Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey, Vintage Photo and Antique Linen to get this effect (have to get more colors!). I used 3-D Foam Dots and Tim Holtz Memo Pins to apply them to the card. 
Hope you like it and you'll
join me in Welcoming Fall and this fun challenge.
Thanks for stopping! Have a wonderful day!

Fabulous, Linda! Absolutely gorgeous design! The detail is just amazing. Love the seed cards cut from WP paper and love that fabulous stamped pumpkin in the memo pin. Fantastic cluster of flowers and layered die cuts, and I so love how you did the sentiment. :)
