Fall Beauty, TSSC86

I started this card a couple of days ago planning on finishing it pretty quickly for Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime challenge, TSSC86. But things got in the way and I just finished it today. The only good thing about it was that I used some of my new Fall Basic Grey paper and the whole 6x6 pack is beautiful! I loved them all so much that I bought two packs of it! Also I used Smooch to make the berries and originally I only had red ones then yesterday I picked up the pumpkin color so then I decided to use my harvest color(yellow) to make three different color berries on the wreath. It now looks a lot more fallish. I guess things worked out for the best. I tried to take a close up of the wreath so you could see the bright, metallic shimmer of the Smooch colors, IRL it still shimmers a lot more.

Finally I thought the card needed a bit more texture so I used my Scor-it to make lines in the solid DP and the sanded them to make them stand out a bit more. I like the card to look balanced, KWIM? I am happy with the finished card though it evolved a lot from my first ideas.

Stamps: Memory Box, Hero Arts
Paper: SU Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, Papertrey White, DP Basic Grey
Ink: Memento Brown, Pumpkin Pie, Smooch Colors
Accessories: Scor-it Mini, Nesties, Recollections Pearls, Leaf Punch, Michaels Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my creation. I hope you liked it as much as I liked making it. Pleas stop by again soon.

Have a great start to the week,
