OCC - Inspiration Challenge

Thanks for stopping by! Today’s card is for this week’s challenge over at Our Creative Corner. I will be hosting the challenges for the month of November and I started with an Inspiration Challenge. We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.
While I was searching for some fun challenges for November, I saw this adorable photo. This week, I challenged the OCC to find inspiration from this picture.

For my sample, I started with this NEW digi image from Stamps and Smiles called Fall Fun. I uploaded the image into word and sized it down just a bit. After printing the image, I used my Copic's to color it in. After the image was colored, I took a light grey (W-1), and traced the outside lines. What a difference, it really made the image pop!!


The background paper was some fun paper I got on clearance at Michaels called Recollection - Autumn. For fun, I added some piercing on each of the layers and then glued each layer on. Ribbon was added to make the white border pop and then I added some linen thread. Does anyone know where I can find this linen thread cheap? I am running low and still need it for my Fall/Winter cards.


Please stop by the OCC to see the other samples by the amazing OCC designers. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs & Smiles,
