Fall Birthdays

Hello my friends!
It's time once again to share a DT creation for 613 Avenue Create Challenge Blog!

Today's TWIST is to create a CAS (clean and simple) card.
Our sponsor is . . .

  and they are offering the fabulous prize of FOUR images from their store!
They have also provided a couple adorable images for the team to create with today and I have chosen an image called Autumn Fashion Boots.  I chose this image because it made me smile as soon as I saw it!  Reminded me of the "Go Go" boots we wore back in the 60s!  I know I'm aging myself here but that's okay ... we thought we were pretty HOT in those boots ... of course the heel wasn't quite that high!  How could you possibly dance the 'go-go' with heels that high?   LOL!

Now mind you . . . CAS is truly NOT my favorite design style (just not very good at it for some reason) ... but I did the best I could do without all the layers/embellishments that I love so much!  LOL!

My coloring was done with a combination of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and pencils.  The leaves were colored with the pencils and the background (sky/grass) was created with markers IB1, LG2 and Blender.  A combination of scrap die cuts was used for the inside sentiment and a 'loose' fall leaf added a coordinating touch to the sentiment on the front.

Challenges I'd like to share in today are:
 Anything Goes With a Twist - Female
Crafty Catz Challenge - Autumn 
Colouring Crazy Challenge - Autumn Colors
~Jo's Scrap Shack #61 - Happy Fall
Sister Act Challenge - Anything Goes

I hope you'll come play along in our challenge!  I can't wait to be inspired by YOUR 'CAS' creation!  Hopefully I'll pick up a few pointers ... heaven knows I could use the help!!  

Have a great day!
As always . . .
