The Robyn's Fetish Challenge #284 -"ADD LEAVES, REAL or FAUX" - 10/4/2015


Happy Day my friends!  I've had some HAPPY NEWS under my belt for awhile now and today I get to 'spill the beans'!!!  LOL!   I'm thrilled and honored to tell you that I've been asked to join the design team at Robyn's Fetish!  Yes ... how cool is that and today is my DEBUT!  If you're not familiar with this challenge blog and their fabulous digi images, by all means please click the link and check it out!

As you can see by my title, this week's challenge is
ADD LEAVES ... Real or Faux

The lucky winner of this challenge will receive their choice of 3 Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps from the ROBYN'S FETISH DIGITAL STAMPS AND MORE STORE!   So, you'll want to be sure and join in the fun!!

Today I have used the Robyn's Fetish digi image named "Basket of Apples" ...

This image was so much fun to color and it's perfect for any Fall occasion card you might need to create.  Wouldn't it be perfect to adorn the front of a masculine Fall birthday card?!  I decided to create a 'note' card that I can write a personal note inside to a friend who lives far away.  I think she'll be jealous knowing I'll be seeing all these wonderful colors soon as she doesn't get to experience the 'changing of seasons' in her area.  WOW I don't know if I'd be happy living somewhere that doesn't have the seasonal changes ... guess I'm just spoiled. LOL!

I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for my coloring today.  Once completed, I just couldn't help but add a bit of shine to this variety of Fall apples with SU Crystal Effects and of course a cute little gold satin bow.  

I hope you've found inspiration in today's card!  If it's more inspiration you are in need of, then by all means pop over to the Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and take a peek at the awesome creation by my team mates.

Congratulations my friend! Your card is lovely and I do love those pretty apples and leaves. We are still receiving lots of rain...guess I'm glad it isn't snow!

Welcome to our DT! This is beautiful and I think the Crystal Effects added to the apples is a great idea. Love the adorable banner with the "HAPPY FALL" greeting - so pretty with its colorful letters on it. Nice idea to turn those ivy die leaves into maple leaves - very creative thinking! Such a beautifully done card! Thank you!

Welcome to our Family. Your card is wonderful. I love the bright and beautiful colors you used. It's nice to see someone from Ohio. I don't see that very often.
