Digistamps4Joy Challenge #27 – The Colors of Fall

Yup…it’s that time of year again. Seems like just yesterday we were finishing winter and here we are almost at fall again. Oh wait a minute…it was just yesterday that winter ended lol. Anyways, to celebrate this time of year We were given a challenge to create something that reflected fall…not necessarily fall themed, but the colors of fall. So we were given this picture as inspiration.

Isn’t it beautiful…gotta love all those wonderful reds, greens, browns, yellows and oranges. So for my project I got to play with a fabulous image called  Funky Kate and you can find her here.
Isn’t she just the cutest? This card is for a friend that lives in another country, so I thought that I would really get into the fall theme and send her a bit of Canada…our Maple leaf. Sorry though, I can’t give you a link for the pattern of the card because I made this one myself lol.

I coloured Kate with Prisma Scholar pencil crayons and did her belt and shirt strap with gold metallic marker, the flowers were a birthday gift from my wonderful friend Vickie, and the yellow stamen were a win from my wonderful friend Tee.  

So what do you have to do to enter this challenge you ask? Well it’s so easy, all you do is:

Make a creation using the colors of fall…it does not have to be fall themed.
One random winner will be chosen ( to win 3 images of choice from the store.

We will then have a DT's choice award. This award will go to the card / project that we vote to be our favourite (and must be a digistamps4joy image). This winner will receive a $6 gift voucher to spend in the store. We hope that there will be an entry (or two) using a Digistamps 4 Joy image, as there wasn't one in the previous challenge.

You do not need to use a Digistamps4Joy image to win, but we’d love it if you do!
We will choose 2 runners-up who we feel deserve a spot in the top 3.
