b-day for fall...

Hello all!
After a very rough last few days, my mom took me out for some "retail therapy". Man I had fun! But, I am back in to share a project with you all! Yay!

So I asked the Creative Inspirations team to be inspired by the Autumn season... their projects are all great and can be found here....

I however, strayed from the traditional crimsons, rusts, yellows, and browns in favor of a deep purple. All the deep rich colors remind me of fall.... and I've got some fall b-days in my family, so this is what I came up with....
Paper: Bazzill, white cardstock
Stamps: Fiskars "Polka Dots", Stampendeous "Ribbon"
Ink: Memento
Cricut: Preserves
CI Paint: *limited edition* Burgundy, Blush
Other: ribbon, rhinestones

I stamped my background with the Burgundy CI paint. I love how it adds that little extra something.... the flowers were cut out of white cardstock, painted with Blush, then crinkled up to add texture. I also dragged my Burgundy paint pad over the edge of the card.

And... big announcement...*drum roll...* the CIDT is in search of new designers! Yup, yup, yup! So, if you are interested, you can find all the details here. Fabulous, huh!

have a fantastic day, and get those applications sent in!
