CD 463 - Thankful x2

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 463! 

We have a beautiful autumn image this week - you can select any colours from the image plus black and white. 

I created two cards - not intentionally - but the first one didn't turn out quite as I had expected... I will post both of them here. 

This is actually the second card that I made... I used a pattern from Make It From Your Heart Volume 4 (CTMH). The panels of patterned paper are from a variety of paper packs. I disassembled the packs where I only had 1 full sheet of paper or less and combined them into colour related packages. The cross piece was stamped on Linen cardstcok in two colours and adhered to green glitter paper. After the panels were adhered, I stamped a border around the edge as well. The flower was cut from an inked piece (using Distress Oxides) and a backing piece of Fern cardstock was placed behind the leaf. It looks like the veins are on top but they really are on the back. I added a fw sequins to finish off my card. 

The first card that I made is below. I used a birch tree background die and rather than cutting it, I embossed it onto Linen cardstock. I used the same colour ink to drag over the embossed image, separating the trees a little better. The trees along the bottom were masked and stamped on Linen cardstock and fussy cut at the top. I added some coordinating ink around the edges. A simple sentiment was stamped in two colours and added to the top.

Wow, first card is really striking and bright colors, it so matches the TicTacToe Board. And your second card is very pretty with softer colors too.

I love the first card with the bright colors and the stamped edge. But the background on the second is fabulous!

Wonderful cards, Alyson! The colors are perfect for the traditional Autumn card but the background of the second is most intriguing.
