Embellish Leaves, Acorns & Pine Cones Color Challenge

Hello my friends! The latest challenge over at Embellish is inspired by the autumn season, perfectly fitting since most of us are still finishing our Thanksgiving leftovers. So here is my fall submission... I don't really own any fall type stamps but I did happen to pick up some pattern paper and acrylic frames, from the Making Memories Autumn Splendor Collection, on sale from the craft store. The frame was backed with cream cardstock, stamped with a sentiment, wrapped and tied with ribbon then attached to the card base over a leafy pattern paper strip. I kept the card simple, to not distract to much from the shimmery frame (the shimmer is hard to see in the photo but it's there).

So do any of you already have your Christmas trees up? I am thinking of putting mine up tonight.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. This is so simple and elegant. I love the colours and the prints. Beautiful.

    My family tradition is to put the tree and decorations up on 1st December....and its already well into the 2nd Dec over here!! Argghh.....I think it's gonna be waiting until this weekend this year (my mother will have kittens, lol.)

  2. You sound like me. I didn't have any fall stamps either! I love the way this turned out!

  3. So pretty! I love the frame and how you tied your ribbon!
    My kids have been wanting to put our tree up, but my husband has been out of town camping. So I told them we have to wait til' got home, so I guess we will put it up this week! :)

  4. simply, beautiful and elegant!! love this!

  5. Maile you dit a great job with this card. Like it very much.

    I put the tree in the house next week. We first celebrate "Sinterklaas" on the 5th. After that the Christmasstuff is coming in.
    That's our tradition.
