Fall 'n Paint Chips

The challenge for the month of November, at our local stamping club, was to make a card using the four paint chips (thanks Lowe's) that were handed out in October. The challenge at the Paper Players was a "Fall" theme challenge. I thought I would combine the two since the paint chips were definitely 'Fall' colors.


These are the paint chips before I started on  my card. This is the after:


The leaves were cut with a Sizzix die, then gold embossed with a Wiff of Joy stamp set. The sentiment is from the Inky Antics Mervin Thanksgiving set, rhinestones and Marvy Gold pen from Michaels and the Fleur De Lis square is a Nestie.

There is another card in progress with the remaining paint chip scraps. I'll post that next week.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
