Happy Magical Monday

Nilla has offered up a challenge to all of us to use this recipe: 1 ribbon, 2 embellishments, 3 DPs, and 4 flowers.   Once again, it was truly a challenge for me – I am so accustomed to “doing my own” thing, that being part of a DT is a challenge in itself – but one I am truly enjoying, and it really is good thing to work “out of your box” so to speak.  My image this week is “Harvest Geese” and you can find it in Nina’s shop HERE. I think this is a most beautiful Autumn scene and so peaceful with these sweet geese – and they truly are sweet, we have a lot of geese here during the summer and I love to go to the lake, feed them, and have them nestle in beside me and take naps with their babies – one of life’s great simple pleasures.

Harvest Geese - Full

The image was colored with a combination of PrismaColor, Crayola, RoseArt, and Koh I Noor pencils and blended with OMS. My 2 embellishments are paper piercing and the stacked buttons with gem in the center of the 4 flowers all on my 1 ribbon.

Here’s a close up of the button/gem embellishment.

Come play along with us – there’s always a free image available, you can use one you already have, or stop by the Paper Cupcakes Shop and pick up a new one – there’s so many cute images to choose from – and have fun!! There’s always a cool prize for a lucky someone too!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week! For anyone interested, I’ll be posting more banners this week also!

Just beautiful. The autumn colors are so much fun to look at after this long hot summer. Wonderful job with the buttons and the roses too as embellishments.

Dru, such a lovely fall card. I always love making the seasonal type cards. Of course who doesn't just love the fall colors and your roll of flowers and your stacked buttons are just fab. I always love to see how different people use their buttons, I would have never thought to stack them, but I will now! Lovely card!
