Have a Great Day GBCB-018

This week I am entering a card at Joan's Gardens; we have a fallish challenge with the following:

  • Use fall colors
  • Include leaves
  • Add a tree and/or a bird
  • Use something sold at Joan's Gardens
Using ivory cardstock, I glued down an burnt orange paper; on top of that is a bright golden yellow paper run through a bird and leafy swirl EF. The brown branches are cut out and to them are glued leaves that had been sponged with fall greens, oranges, reds, golds and browns. Across the top is a copper/brown ribbon and a sentiment stamped and framed. A cheerful little bird is perched on one of the branches.

Here is a picture of the card:

And here are the tools used to make the card:

Spellbinders:  Birds, P5-006
Cuttlebug: Birds and Swirls Embossing Folder
Martha Stewart:  Three-Leaf Punch
JustRite Stamp:  CR-03885
EK Success:  Framing Punch
Fallish colored inks
Copper/Brown Ribbon

I am also entering this card at Avenue 613, Simon Says, 4 Crafty Girlz Challenges and Word Art Wednesday.

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
