Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!



I have a quick post for you today! I hope you aren’t tiring of these SU leaves as of yet, as I am just getting started….LOL.  This card was inspired by three different challenges.  The first was Fusion Card Challenge where they have a Fabulous fall photo, secondly…. Inkspirational Challenges where the requirement is vellum, and the last but not least…. is Time Out Challenges, where they have a phrase about being grateful. It was so easy to get inspired with that gorgeous front porch scattered with leaves.  I also thought the Vellum tied in really well with the illuminated candles.  I blended oxide inks on my white leaves to begin with and then sprinkled them with water, Then I heat embossed my sentiment on vellum. I added some orange gems and some Nuvo drops to finish it off.  

I am so thankful for your visits! HUGS!  Nanc’
