Eclectic Ellapu #50: Celebrate Autumn

Time for another new challenge at Eclectic Ellapu, my friends. This week our hostess is the lovely Yvonne and she has invited us to "Celebrate Autumn". Now that is the perfect excuse to go to town with the seasonal colours and imagery.

I made a thanksgiving card to celebrate all the good things in life. Sure, things don't usually turn out the way we want them to, but I believe everything happens for a reason. And we truly have much to be thankful for... a lot more than  we care to admit!


I made a 5" square card with a punched border. The papers are by Basic Grey's "Pyrus" 6x6 pad - now discontinued. I distressed the edges and applied TM's Vintage Photo. The greeting by WMS,  heat embossed in black.  
I used plenty of foam tape for dimension. For embellies - some sheer orange ribbon and green bling.
The focal image is by WMS coloured with Graph'It markers. For cutting and layering I used Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circle dies.
On the inside I stamped a few falling leaves... it is autumn, after all!

Time for a few autumnal challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks #162 "Fall / Autumn"
Addicted To Stamps #65 "Photo Inspiration"
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #64 "Anything Goes with Ribbon"
Cute Card Thursday #289 "Signs of Distress"
Sister Act Card #27 "Anything Goes"
All Sorts Challenge #227 "Autumn Colours"
Make It Monday #161 "Anything Goes"

And now it's your turn to create something to celebrate Autumn and link it up over at the Eclectic Ellapu Challenge Blog. For ideas and inspiration take a look at what the rest of the design team. You will not be disappointed!

Thanks for stopping by and I'm looking forward to seeing your work.

Beijinhos!

  6. It's funny, but when you look back at your life & the things that you thought were disastrous at the time...those are the things that led you to something. I can easily rattle off half a dozen things like that - wonderful things that came out of really difficult situations. Being thankful is a wonderful way to feel :) I love your card - the sheer ribbon & stitching are such great accents, and your shading on the basket & pumpkins...wow!
