Just when everything is going well, something will happen to throw a curve into the order. My computer had to be sent in for warrantee work. My screen died! So we continue, but at a much slower pace.
Here is my contribution for this week's challenge at My Heart Pieces: Use Metal. I started with 'Baby Bee Enjoys Fall' and coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils then I fussy cut it out. I took a blues sheet of Spellbinders metal and trimmed it to 3 7/8x 6 7/8" then embossed it twice, once with leaves along the bottom and swirls on the top 3/4 of the sheet. I used brown StazOn ink along the leaves then green alcohol ink to try to make it like dirt for the pumpkins. I sanded the swirl part to get some dimension. I matted this onto gold textured paper and then shimmer green cardstock by DCWV. (Die Cuts With A View) I folded a copper sheet in half to make a 5 1/2x 8 1/2" card. I added a metallic ribbon with wheat and copper accents along the right side of the card. I adhered the matted panel on top of the card, then added the pumpkins and Baby Bee. Finished off with accenting with 3 metal leaf brads along the bottom and stickles on the bee's wings.
