FIRST CARD FOR AUTUMN

Today's challenge in the Hero Arts discussion group's 90 minute challenge was to use a geometric design and of course HA products.  So I created this card with a few other challenges in mind.  Time Out has a lovely fall photo inspiration and since I had used a marbled piece for the leaves, it also fits CAS Mix-UpIt also fits the "fall" LOVE challenge on Flickr .

The leaves, die cuts, embossing and sentiment are all  from the new Hero Arts holiday release.  I had made the marbled piece using reinkers and wasn't really thrilled with the outcome - but die cutting the leaves from it made it work.  Used Neenah copper metallic cs for the circle, PTI soft stone cs for the base and added a few enamel dots to complete my card.  The techniques used for the CAS Mix-Up were marbling, die cutting and stamping.




Supplies: HA DI199, CL987, DI315, PW116

  7. Those leaves are incredible, Betty! It always amazes me how a piece I don't like for a background works great for die cuts!
