Guest Designer ... YIPPEE!!


Earlier this month I was lucky enough to be chosen as the winner over at Delightful Challenges and they've also asked me to be their Guest Designer for today's challenge.

For my winner's prize I chose this lovely fall image called 'Sunflower Arrangement' as well as 'Leafy Fall Sentiment' stamp.  I did go into Word and modify the color on my sentiment stamp to reflect more of a 'fall' color versus black. That is one of the fun things about digi images ... besides of course you can make them whatever size your project needs.

I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for my coloring and I just love how it came together.  How do you like that 'wonky' stitching (ssshhh ... I cheated ... I used a paper piercer and a coffee ZIG marker).

My background paper is OLD (DCWV I think) and doesn't that burlap look REAL???  Well, it's not ... it's paper and I got it at either JoAnn's or Michaels.   LOVE the added texture it gives this card.

I hope you'll come join in the challenge fun today!
