INSPIRED BY...

Inspired By All The Little Things has a wonderful inspiration photo this week.

Used a scrap of pp for the frame and added the black background stamped with the sentiment and white embossed.  The tree and pine swag were die cut from a scrap of yupo paper colored with alcohol inks.  The "snowflakes" were created with some Nuvo crystal drops - they are white but photographed sort of blue (:  
Was also inspired by Gaytri's card where she used the TH Layered Leaves stencil and some Brushos to create a lovely fall card.

I used leaf green, red, orange and yellow Brushos on the stencil, spritzed with water and carefully lifted it up and was delighted how well it turned out with the first go!  On the bottom half I added versamark stamped leaves and berries and the thank you sentiment from EH Autumn Acorns.  The top part is popped up with some fun foam.  I am entering this in the EH Pinsights challenge -  was inspired by the leaves and colors in the inspiration photos.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

  3. wonderful cards Betty. I am a bit partial to the first...it might be the Christmas music playing and the blustery day outside that is pulling me towards holiday images though.
