Day 20 - only eleven left!
We're really enjoying our days of Indian summer here in western Ohio. The fall color has peaked here and it's just gorgeous everywhere you look!
Today's card a a little lighter in color than the scary ones from the past two days. I had to sneak in a ribbon and just one button, too. The pumpkin faces along the bottom half are a border I cut from a sheet of scrapbook paper. I have about 300 different papers and usually have to go through most of them to get the one I want, but when I find the one and only paper that matches what I've envisioned for my project, I am only then perfectly satisfied.
How about you? Do you agree that the time making the card is as nothing, compared to the time in selecting the elements you want to use? Do you first imagine the card design and then search for the materials - or do you mess around with all your papers and embellishments until they provide the just right inspiration?
Have a happy day today - and if you haven't entered yet, you can do it right here on the blog or send to my email, firstname.lastname@example.org - better hurry! October's running out!
