Fall Leaves Circle Card



I just love Fall colours, both to decorate with and wear, so this ColorQ challenge was right up my alley :)  My first thought was to pull out Stampin' Up's Season of Friendship tree, but then I realized there is no brown in the challenge and a green tree trunk just didn't sit right with me LOL!  Option B didn't take long as I'm still madly in love with PTI's Turning A New Leaf set and it fit this colour scheme perfectly.

Since I had so much fun making my  last circle card I just had to make another one (this could become my next addiction)!  The base is Old Olive and the leaves include all the challenge colours.  Some how Swiss Dots managed to get in on the action as did some ruffled ribbon -- looks like all my addictions are out in full force on this card LOL!  A buttoned bow and some butterflies finished things off.

Since I got no where near planting my pansies or cleaning up my craft area last weekend, it is back on the agenda this weekend.  Will see how far I get this time round LOL!  Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend :)

I have no equipment that would allow me to make circle cards (my one and only I've made was possible only because someone gave me a scalloped circle all ready to go LOL!!), so I'm always so impressed when I see one done, especially this beautifully!! Those ColourQ colors are just so pretty together. You did am amazing job with them! Good luck getting those pansies planted :)

Beautiful! I like the round style again but the flowers in the colors are perfect. Good luck on the cleaning and planting this weekend. :0)
I made it out alive, but have a horrible heacache from the braces. I was so nervous I almost puked. I am such a wimp. But I did okay, a little achy but more the headache than anything. they said that is normal. I took a 2 hour nap and I usually don't sleep that long, so you know I was out for the count. Thanks for the prayers, I did feel them today. Hugs.
