Fall Sweater - Fab Friday 26

Happy Friday stampers!  We have another great challenge for you over at Fab Friday!  This time around it's a color challenge!

  This one really stretched me...They are wonderful colors and appear in the new Sweater Weather DSP but I just couldn't get a card that I'm completely happy with; something with the Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango being color bullies with the other colors.  Everyone wasn't playing well together!  I know you all won't have that problem and will get these colors to behave!  I think my mojo is still in hiding after not stamping much this summer!


I used the current challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches for my layout.  A few of my demo buddies are on the design team so it's always fun to see what they are making.

Just a few details on my card to take note of; the Soft Sky strip was embossed with the Woodgrain embossing folder for some fun texture.  My big oak leaf was inked up in Sahara Sand and then sponged a bit with Crushed Curry along the edges before stamping and cutting out with the Oval Framelits.  The large Chocolate Chip oval is also paper pierced along the edge.

I sponged the bit of Whisper White ribbon with Chocolate Chip ink to keep it from being too bright. The acorn was inked with marker and then I layered a bit of frayed linen thread behind it and then topped with a faceted button and pearl.  I also balance the heavy top left with a sprinkling of a few more pearls down on the bottom right.

 Head on over to see the awesome creations my fellow designers came up with for Fab Friday 26.  Don't forget to play along; you have almost 2 weeks!
