Whimsical Wednesday Challenge - Fall Colors

Good Morning.  Today is the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge - Fall Colors.  The challenge is to make a card/project with fall colors AND include a handmade embellishment of some kind.   This week Creative Inspiration Paints will be our sponsor. One random winner will get to pick out five colors of their gorgeous paint.

I made a birthday card for my Mom.  My kids call her Marmar instead of Grandma.  It's just the way they said it when they were babies and it stuck!  My handmade embellishment is a little flower I made out of hem tape to match the ribbon I also put on the card.
I used My Creative Time's newly released stamp set Whimsical Calendar Days and the Coordinating XL Label Die.  To say I LOVE this set is an understatement.  Fabulous stamps and so many possibilities.  I know I will use this constantly!!

 My Supplies:
XL Label Die  -  My Creative Time
Blossomwood Paper  -  K&CO
Lemon Tart Cardstock  -  Papertrey Ink
Grunge Board Letters  -  Tim Holtz
Brown Stickles and Buttons
Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Distress Inks
Pearl Glimmer Mist
Hem Tape  -  Wrights
Thank you for stopping by.  Please go check out the Whimsical Wednesday blog to see the rest of the Design Team's Projects.  Have a great day!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)
