A Crisp Fall Day

The last of the cards that I did for the recent Frantic Stamper release called A Crisp Fall Day. For this card I had in my mind a tic tac toe look, but I wanted the roosters on the diagonal. So I fiddled around until I got the look I wanted, which is above. I also wanted to use the plaid designer paper, and I wanted fall colours. Do you do these things to yourself too. Giggles! In any event, I am also not the best for lining up things, so I took assistance from the stitched square die in the Elementals Square Basics Set #14 cutting the 9 squares needed from the different colours. After attaching the squares it was so easy to line up the Peeking Give Thanks squares. I matted with the orange in the plaid paper for contrast, and that is all that was needed in my humble opinion. I really like it, and hope you do as well.

I love bright colours, does it show? They make me happy, so when I can, I use them, hence my bright Pumpkin Patch. I watercoloured the patch using Winsor Newton watercolour paints and added fallen leaves under my patch for extra colour, which are also from Frantic Stamper and called Petite Oak Leaves. I attached everything to my card base which I embossed using my pumpkin embossing folder. The fall sentiment is from the Fall Harvest Panel. This finishes the cards that I did for the latest release from Frantic Stamper. The next release will be September 1st, so I hope you will visit to see what the design team and myself do for that release.
