Harvest Geese!

OK, I'm on a roll, 2 cards these week! No more until the week-end though - we have parent conferences till 7 pm the next two nights. Picture me sleepy!

This card fits the criteria for 4 challenges. Decided to keep it simple!

* The first, of course, is the free digi from There's Magic In the Air. Nina provides the digi along with a challenge. This was by Curt to use pop up dots to provide some 'pop'. I 'lifted' the pumpkins and basket.

*The second challenge is Day 234 - Tuesday's Trio at 365 Cards. This kind of challenge is fun because the trio on all the cards should be the same, but how you use them is remarkably different. The trio elements are: Pearl - Tag - Ribbon. It's hard to tell in the photo, but I lucked out and found an 'orangey' pearl to blend with the color scheme, which is the next challenge...

*from Monday, October 19, 2009 colourQ challenge #3. The colors are pumpkin pie, apricot appeal, certainly celery, pale plum with black and a neutral allowed.

*The last challenge I incorporated is the sketch from Papertake Weekly, Sketch #26 . A pretty simple clean sketch, just right for late night card making - well - late for me!

Not bad for a card I started after 8pm! Hope you enjoyed my Thanksgiving card and I hope to be back this week-end to solve a few more challenges. I'm glad I'm feeling better but now my DH is feverish and not feeling well. Gee Willies, I guess after all these years we can still share! SAM

Hey Sam - So glad you got to play tonight!!! You did great with thte colors! Are those geese? They're so cool! Don't work too hard this week!

Kim said...

AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! You got this done! YEAH!!! Nice to know that peer pressure still works for you ;) I love the orangey pearl, the tag, how you combined those two! PLUS, popping the pumpkins and basket on top of the ribbon really gives it dimension (good job on the cutting out after 6pm!) :) the fuzzy brads are a cool addition too! Can't wait to see what you get done this weekend! :) Aloha, KL and Malie

Sam your card is just lovely! I also love those colors together as well, nice job on how you displayed them and your peral brad was the perfect finishing touch! Glad you guys can still share too, although I think I would be a little more picky about what you share! :O) Glad you are feeling better! Thanks for joining us in our challenge this week over at TMITA!
