Bloggers Challenge- Fall Card

Today the Bloggers Challenge is a Fall theme- I  like working with Fall colors alot.  I used two different digi’s and taught myself some new digital ‘skills’ in my Paint program (getting smarter everyday- LOL).

This is the free digital image from FCD (on the LT) and a fall digi (Child of Fall) from the store.  I flipped the Child of Fall digital image and removed the border and the words. I also figured out how to crop out a section of leaves, and that is what I used for the leaves on the side of the card- the sketch is from Card Patterns Sketch 80. I colored the image with Copics- I added Crystal Effects to the apples and Copic Spica to the rake. The Green panel is a Double Bugging technique- I learned from the Technique Junkies.  I had my twine out still from the SCS Ways to use it challenge, so added some of that as well.

The next two cards I quickly made up with some DSP that I purchased at the Wilton sale- coordinating colors Sage and Buckaroo Blue.  (And, more digi editing…….) No words, no border…..

and, no border, but sentiment left on…

My husband likes the white panel and I do not-
What do you think???
