Autumn...The year's last Loveliest Smile

This card was created for Paper Sweeties Inspiration #37 and my inspiration came from the color palette.  For last month's challenge I had chosen the birdcage, but missed the deadline.  So, I decided to use the birdcage for this month's challenge, having a pretty good idea of what I wanted to do, so I changed the color palette and design paper.  I love the CTMH Design Paper "Pathfinding" for Fall/Autumn cards and chose the busier design paper which included all the challenge colors, along with a soft blue...the blue would be incorporated into my embellishment.  Abigail was stamped, colored and fussy-cut, her outfit was cut from design paper for the top and the pants colored, shoes colored on feet and added liquid glass.  

Back to Cricut Design Space...Selected a tag to provide a more decorative bottom for the birdcage so that I could place flowers in and around.  Selected two different flowers similar to the ones on the design paper, cut variety of colors, stamped with a small floral stamp, rolled the edges and then adhered with glue dots in/around and flowing down from the bottom of the birdcage.  Added blue and gold sequins to centers of some of the flowers, and added a flower to Abagail's hair.  3D Foam tape was used for Abigail and birdcage.  Blue crinkle ribbon/bow added to bottom of card.  The Sentiment, a quote of William Cullen Bryant, was on one of the Stamps in Paper Sweeties which I did not have, however I typed and printed the sentiment in Design Space with Very Berry color thin pen.

Your card is very sweet. I'm glad we got to see it, Suzanne. I'm sorry if I missed it last week.

Suzanne Reynolds said...

I noticed on my submitted card that it takes you to an unknown page. I'm not sure why, but is there any way you can fix this and put the proper http on that submission. It was brought to my attention by another challenge, it may have been a title change that created this problem. this is the address to take to this page.
