Mimosa Scarecrow and a RAK!



Good Morning and Happy Tuesday!

Now that the weather is getting cooler, I was inspired to make a fall themed card. The past few days have been cold and wet...perfect stamping weather! The name of my image is Mimosa (Bildmalarnas) and I honestly feel that she is too cute to scare anyone!

Roses On Paper #22 and Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #15

I recently made this card and am lucky because this cards meets the requirements of both Roses On Paper's color challenge + an additional sketch challenge! The sketch that I used also meets the requirements for Kaboodles Challenge #15! So....two challenges on one card...too awesome!


ROP Challenge is to make a card using the colors orange,brown and green along with a sketch from another blog. The sketch matches this one from Kaboodle Doodles.

Mimosa is colored in with Copic Markers and matted onto the large nestie die. The design paper is from Papertrey Ink and the card stocks are by SU and Papertrey Ink. The sentiment is from Magnolia's 08 Fall kit. To embellish my card, I used ribbon, gems and flowers.

RAK from Jana (2 Worlds)



Jana sent me this beautiful birthday RAK a few days ago and what a surprise! Thank you so much for the beautiful card and yummy Basic Grey DP!

Well, I guess I better get into motion and get a few things done around the household. Take care and try to have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs

Risa
