First, I thought I'd try to play with the Pile it on challenge, and of course to play there you have to combine more than one challenge including theirs. So here we go!
Pile it on - Challenge #24 - 3 flowers and 5 pearls
Secret Crafter - Challenge #58 - Four Seasons
Lil Red Wagon - Challenge #3 - Distress It Up
La La Land Crafts - Challenge #13 - Thankful
EbtKS - First Sketch Challenge
Some fun details on the card now! The base is close to cocoa and a layer of burlap. (Seriously, I love this stuff!) The little squares of DSP are actually the PTI "Try before you buy" in the Autumn Abundance. I have been a loyal customer of Stampin' Up, but I am blown away by the amazing stuff PTI has. I'm now trying to figure out how to sneak a big, fat order past my adorable husband when I already meet (and order) each month with my fun SU girls. ;) Just kidding, he already said to just order something, but now I have to figure out everything I want right now from my mile long list! Anyway, I am in love with this paper so it was way fun to try it out tonight!
The DSP was punched out, distressed, and inked up, then layered over the burlap with a rub on sentiment on one square. The ovals were then cutout with the Creative Memories oval cutter, and I used some scallop scissors to freehand the outer oval. The leaf was stamped and colored in with an aqua pen, and then distressed before I did the cracked glass technique over it. (See, I just couldn't stop doing things to this card!) Finally some flowers and pearls finish it off.
