Fall Blessings

Hi. I am posting a card I put together at a Fall retreat a couple of weeks ago- the background was on a table where people shared items they no longer care to keep- the sharing table : )

 The image was a gift from a friend- PSX Sunflower. I colored it with Copics and trimmed it closely fussy cutting. I used a CD to make the red circle out of cardstock. The sentiment is from Create with TLC.
 I am away until the end of the week- I'll have little snippets of time to visit blogs while away, but will be catching up when I return.

Challenges:
One Crazy Stamper- Fall ( or Christmas or Halloween)
613 Avenue Create- AG w/sights and sounds of Autumn
My Time to Craft- Autumn Colors
Crafty Addicts- Fall color palate
Word Art Wednesday-AG
Crafting Desert Divas'- Fall color inspiration

Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly

What a stunning card Shelly - love the orange layer behind the gorgeous sunflower, the red circle is the perfect background behind it, and other background perfect for the card.

I find it amazing you picked up a random piece of sponged paper and turned it into this card. Just proves once again one man's trash is another man's treasure and this is a card I'm sure someone will treasure. Great job with the sunflower.

Wonderful and bright creation. So delighted that you joined us at Word Art Wednesday. A new challenge is starting today and I hope you visit us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in Jeremiah 29:12-13 and the Lord tells us, "Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Have an awesome day!
