Altenew Inspiration Challenge

I just saw the inspiration photo for the October Inspiration Challenge at Altenew and loved those colors so I made a card using one of the Altenew stencils called Foliage Stencil. I did my best to incorporate the colors of the photo and as a result I find I really like this card. I hope you do too! The sentiment is from the Altenew Sentiment Strips stamp set. And, the dies used are from the Altenew Mix and Match Frames. I used two of them from that set for this card. After all was layered I added it to a brown card base and then used a yellow card stock die cut rectangle for the inside so I can stamp or write a message.



Below is the inspiration photo that showed the colors to be used. My leaves are not quite the same as those on the board but they are still leaves.


Well, I am so glad you stopped by to see what I have been doing today! I love to read all the comments you leave me. I hope your day was a good one too!

God bless, Verna

Great colors of original leaves. They look frosty and so cool! Sorry to hear that you are back in a wheelchair, but it seems to be working for you.

Beautiful use of the colors! I never seem to have much luck with stencils but you've added the colors beautifully!!

I just looked up the town where you live. I grew up in South Dakota and still have family across the state but did not know Big Stone City! Now that I know where it is, the closest connection I have is the old family farm on my mom's side which was outside of Clear Lake. I spent summers there for years.
