Papertrey Tuesday

Thank you for all the GREAT comments on my post yesterday - they completely made me SMILE! (I'm glad my quirky little comments about my chair and my love of all things Firth didn't fall on deaf ears...)

It dawned on me recently that I haven't been sharing a whole lot of my Papertrey cards with you, which is really crazy because I make them like ALL the time. :) I'm going to try to start posting them on Tuesdays and hopefully I can make it a regular thing. So this card ended up being 5 x 7 (I had a lot to write on the inside, lol) and uses the new PTI set Autumn Abundance. I just adore this set - it is full of beautiful details and is so much fun to color. Here I used Prismacolor pencils. I then colored some extra flowers and cut them out; they're popped up on foam tape on the focal image to give some additional depth, and then placed on the top & bottom panels to create a strong visual line. The colors are Summer Sunrise and Dark Chocolate, just in case you were curious. LMK if you have any questions!

PS - Kimberly asked yesterday about my creations - yes, I do kind of file them away! They're pretty much stuffed into lots of nooks and crannies. They should probably be more organized than they are, but I'm working on that. It's sort of a work in progress, lol.
