Fall Challenge Card

When I was cleaning and organizing my supply cabinet, I found lots of workshop kits that were left over and also die cuts in packages that I had cut.  My goal this year is to use them and see what new design I can come up with using these kits/diecuts.
On the bottom picture is what I started with.  This card has nothing new, just things already cut.
I changed the color of everything, from pink to orange, white to green, bright sun flowers to dark sunflowers, lime green to olive and used only what I had already cut or embossed.


These are the colors I started with.
Product used on this card:
Tim Holtz - Tattered Florals - 656640
Tiffany Frame - 98401 - Memory Box
 Floral Frenzy Embossing Folder - 401787- Crafters Companion  
Moss Green Distressed Stain 
Spellbinder square die has been discontinued    
All above items can be purchased at Joan's Gardens

Below is what you need to do for this week's challenge
  • Do a fall theme

You will have until Friday October 3rd  6:00 AM EST to link your project.

And the winner is~~~~

I will be posting a new challenge just as soon as I have time to sit down at my craft table. Right now we are taking advantage of this gorgeous 70+ degree weather.  We are putting sealer on our porches, I am thinning out most of my flower beds  (I have help with that), we have put cement/sand on all of our brick walks and patio and the list goes on and on.  We  will also be closing up our pond before the leaves starts to fall in buckets.  But, somewhere in there I will make our next challenge card.
