Fall with Critters



Let me start with my excuses LOL! For some reason, I was unable to measure ANYTHING accurately the first time day before yesterday. I really don't know what my issue was.

This card is a combination for 2 challenges. The Critter Sketch challenge for this week is to make a fall card. It just so happened that the color challenge over at stampTv was to use yellow, brown and ivory. I think those are pretty fall colors and so, the card was born! I used the new Lacey Squares Nestabilities, I have to say, that these new Lacey Circles and Squares are my new favorites! I LOVE them! I stamped the image and then used 3 sizes of the squares to cut it out. The second and third layers are all popped up with dimensionals. I hope that the idea to "spotlight" the image comes through. I found the DP at JoAnn's when I went shopping with my "evil" friend Lee who somehow always twists my arm and makes me spend money ;-) Isn't it GORGEOUS!! Of course I forgot to write down who makes it. I'll have to add that later along with a better picture if I can manage to figure out what settings to fix on the camera! Thanks for visiting today.

Recipe:
Stamps: Autumn Splendor (Gina K)
Paper: Sweet Corn, Chocolate Brown, Ivory (Gina K); DP
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Accessories: Lacey Squares (Spellbinders), dimensionals, Copics, Chocolate Pearls
