For Your Inspiration #12

This is my second post for today - please scroll down or click here to see my CASE study inspiration for this week.


For Your Inspiration #12 brings you a taste of autumn! Look at those blaze of leaves - colour, how I love colour!



I inked up the leaves of my tree in yellow then sponged orange around the edges of them. Then I added some buttons to really highlight those autumn colours. Notice those clouds - they are from Lil' Inker Designs and the reason I love them so much is that pierced edge. I often use a white background for my cards and white clouds can risk getting lost but with those pierced edges these clouds just pop right off the card!



Please pop by and see how the rest of the team were inspired!

    Debby I love your card! It made me laugh though because I almost used the exact same tree image with orange ink. Too funny. Love those sweet little clouds and your button accents.

    May sound weird, but I had a dream about that PTI stamp set last night! Not sure why - I don't even own it! Maybe that means I need it?! LOL!
    A gorgeous card - totally my kinda colours :)
    If you want you can enter this into our current challenge on A Passion for Papertrey (I know that I wouldn't mind that card for my own birthday, but I also know a few guys who'd like that too!) no pressure though!
    Hugs,
