The Card Concept - 19


Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going well so far. I have one card to share with you today and it is for the new challenge at The Card Concept #19 and the challenge is a color challenge and the colors are fabulous and so perfect for this time of year. Don't you just love them! I used both the colors and the photo for inspiration but I really struggled on the layering for my card. My style of card for this challenge is clean and layered, I think I got the clean portion and to make it layered I used 3 leaves glued together to give it some dimension. Hope you will find the time to play along, I so love seeing all your beautiful cards. Before I forget, I am using a new Happy Thanksgiving stamp so I am posting my card on Darnell's NBUS challenge. Thank you so much for taking time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your week!

  4. WOWZAMARONI, Kim! CASliciousicious!! That must have taken you forever to fill in the die, but I love, love, love, lvoe it! (Hey, that's not bad, I was able to get a run at it and I didn't misspell it until the fourth one!) I think your layering of the leaf is cool, too, as is the itty yellow leaf for balance!! Thank you so much for continuing to play in my second NBUS Challenge just for the fun of it in order to promote it!! Mwah! Darnell

  17. ....THUD! Jaw-dropped, breath taken away by not only the beauty of this card, but the precision of your 'recreation' of the die with the splendid colours. In awe of your creativity and patience! The leaves, the border edge...fabulous right down to every last detail (and many details there are). Love it!

  20. This is amazing Kim and if I didn't know how much work will have gone into it, I would say it was perfect CAS but there is nothing simple about this one. Just perfection!

  21. Oops - lost my comment before it published, so will try again. Love the way you've used the tri colors on the MB die, and can just imagine that was a fiddly one to inlay. Very effective, and the layered leaf is so pretty - lots of fall color packed into this crisp, clean card. TFS & Happy Sunday.
