Saturated Canary Challenge - Autumn/Fall Colors

Hi Everyone! 

I have to first apologize for my post being late. I had my card done weeks ago so I have no excuse about that, just that I am feeling very under the weather this past week and then it was my hubby & I's 11th anniversary yesterday, yep on 11/11/11!! So, we just been hanging out together, enjoying some alone time while the kiddies are at my parents. It's been fabulous but I've done NOTHING on the computer OR in my craft room even thought hubby and I did go to Hobby Lobby twice this weekend! LOL He's a bit crafty in building things so he needed to make a stop there and I finally picked up some tshirts and onesies for a project I've been trying to finish for a month now! Anyhoot, that is a little background on why I've been blog MIA lately!

This week at Saturated Canary Challenges it's a color challenge to use Fall or Autumn colors. We are smack dab in the middle of fall here in the USA so it's only fitting. I love fall colors, the rich browns, oranges and golds are so yummy! In fact, my favorite stone is the Citrine which is stunningly rich, warm orangey/yellow. More about that later this week as to WHY that is my favorite stone! :D

So, for my card this week, I used the super cute Copica digital image which is a Saturated Canary Digi's. The paper is one of my new favorites called Orchard Harvest from Samantha Walker Designs! I love it! The colors are awesome and perfect for fall. I colored the image with copics (of course!) and love how she turned out. I also printed this digi on heat transfer paper so I can make myself a shirt with it b/c Really, I always have a copic in my hand if I'm stamping!!! That gorgeous brown felt flowers is by Maya road and I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry to adhere it to the card. This stuff is the best for large embellishments like that flower. 

Well, that's it for me, thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you playing in the challenge this week. :D
