It’s Autumn at Cute Card Thursday

Hello friends!  Thank you for joining me!  I hope you’re all having a wonderful week so far!  It’s a tad bit warmer than what I’d like to see it be in September for sure, so I’m hoping it cools down soon!

Today starts a new challenge this week for Cute Card Thursday.  This week we’d like to see your “Autumn” creations.  We look forward to seeing what you create for it!

Here’s what I’ve made using one of our sponsor’s images:

This little squirrel is so sweet and I love how the tail on him was designed!  This is called “Bushy Tail” from All Dressed Up.  They’re sponsoring the challenge this week, so please be sure to play along for a chance to win!

I’ve dug out some papers from my Autumn stash of papers and picked some out that I thought would go with this image.  I layered a strip over a 5″ square piece of dark gray cardstock that I embossed with a leaf embossing folder that I was finally able to use!  I sponged a bit of white ink over the raised areas.

I also took some score tape and ran it down the center of the card and added some glitter over it and burnished it in.  The image panel was popped up over the card with foam tape.  I added some twine around each corner of the image panel along with a bow that I’ve placed a pearl in the center.

Here’s a closer look at the squirrel image that I’ve colored in with Copic markers.  I wanted to keep the squirrel looking a bit softer, so I’ve used some lighter colors.

During the fall is a good time to view all of the squirrels running around our yard trying to burry their nuts.  We seem to find them in silly places sometimes as they save them for later! LOL!

I die cut the image with a scalloped square die and sponged around the edges with some Pumice Stone Distress Ink and layered it over a piece of the dark gray and then layered it again over a piece of kraft cardstock.
