Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Burlap Banner Reminder

CC Oct 21 photo CCOct21pic.jpg

Time for our mid point, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Burlap Banner reminder.   Still lots of time to play, and here is my second take on the challenge.

I decided to have fun with some burlap this time round.   After all, it is in the challenge title LOL!  Pulled out my stash and made a fish tail banner instead of a pendant one.  With all the glorious fall colours beginning to emerge on our maple tree lined street, I had leaves on the brain so went with it (plus I have been neglecting my favorite leaf dies just a bit wink, wink).

The maple leaf is actually dark chocolate brown, even though it does look black in the photo.  Used our sponsor, The Twinery's, orange twine for my accent colour, and it wasn't until after the photo was being edited that I noticed the one twine "tail" on the button bow was crossing over into my sentiment- sorry about that!   As a side note, I coloured in the skull and crossbones image on the bottom border hexagons as it just didn't fit my theme.  The many uses of my black, felt pen LOL!

Love to have you come and join us if you have not already!

I like the combo of twine and burlap. Just a beautiful card. I can see why the skull and crossbones wouldn't work. :-)

So pretty Marisa. Love the big leaf as your focal point... the button is perfect on it... the burlap piece gives a nice texture to your card. Wonderful design.

Texture, dimension, layers, colours/pattern and images...again, you've combined all into a stunning card. So incredibly pretty (and colouring in some of the hexagons = good plan!).
