A Couple Fall Cards

Hi everyone! Hope you had a great Halloween! We did! :D I'll post more on that later. I just wanted to throw up a few challenge cards real quick that are due tomorrow.

This first card is made with the Limelight Papercrafts sketch and product challenge from this last time. The product focus is fall colors. I also made this for a Hope You Can Cling To challenge to use twine. The stamp is Unity Bevy of Butterflies. The paper is Basic Grey Pyrus, the bling is Studio 18, and the twine is May Arts. I used my square punch to make this card. I really like the clean sketch!

My next card has a really special story. I follow Kristen's blog and over the last few months she's been struggling with her cousin's son Ethan and his battle with cancer. As she neared the end of her time with Ethan, she issued a challenge in his honor. To make a card with a gratitude theme because she was grateful for each moment with Ethan. I thought this was SO wonderful and that she is so strong to be grateful instead of angry. My heart hurts for the family, however Kristen's amazing perspective is so beautiful!

My gratitude card uses the Card Patterns sketch from last week. I also made this card for a HYCCT challenge to have 4 layers of paper and 4 kinds of embellishment. I used Ippity's Bitty Pixie Paisley and Fall For You for this card. I used Basic Grey Pyrus again.

Have a great night/wee hours of the morning, everyone! I'll be back later today with TONS of things to share!
