PTI Blog Hop {fall challenge} and Card Patterns #29

Hey friends! Just got done cleaning up a fabulous dinner for my sweetie's birthday. Whew doggies! It was sooo yummy...even yummier because my sweet MIL made it! :) I sat down to take a little blog break and realized I missed the blog hop window for Papertrey. Oh well, there was still plenty of inspiration so I figured, what the heck? and made a card!


I decided to gather additional inspiration from this card sketch from Card Patterns #29:
the sketch:
my card:
I rotated the sketch 90 degrees to the left and then went to town with some luscious fall ribbon, a vintage button, twine, gems and a couple of my favorite Papertrey products: bitty dot paper, Damask Designs and Fancy Flourish stamps.

Check out the :BLING: bLiNg Bling! I just love these golden craft gems. It reminds me of when the sun glints off of the leaves when they turn all of those golden-orange colors. OOOOooh I can't wait for fall to get here with the gorgeous bright blue days, crisp morning air and, best of all, cozy clothing and a fire or two in the woodstove. Bring on the fall!

Thanks for hopping by. I really appreciate that you share you day with me!

Supplies:
Paper: Papertrey Ink and Georgia Pacific
Stamps: Damask Designs and Fancy Flourish by Papertrey
Ink: SU!
Craft Supplies: gems, vintage button, hemp twine and ribbon

Way to make that ribbon work. I can never figure out really big ribbon, but you did a good job. Great job with the fall challenge.

It's a good life!

Oh Dana, you are a girl after my own heart!! LOVE the rich fall colors, your bling, layered stamping, and of course, that ribbon!! I am looking forward to fall too...oh so much! (And really don't want the triple digit heat that's expected to arrive this weekend!) I forgot about PTI's blog hop too, even though I was excited about the theme....think I'm in a end of summer slump!!

Hello, PAPERDAYDREAM! This card IS dreamy! I feel all fallish and satisfied, for some reason. Maybe it's your use of color.. Maybe it's the use of BLING! Or maybe is because you are just so dern crafty: you are like a perfect HARVEST! Hee Hee {I swear, it's only coffee on board right now!} This is GORGEOUS, sweet and crafty gal!
