a wee memories and hero arts challenge combo!

wow - i've just been one busy multi-tasker lately! here's another two-fer card! i made this card for the hero arts contest and the wee memories challenge #22!'s a secret: i'm loving this card!

ok, here's the skinny on this card. both challenges are autumn/fall themed! i love it already!! fall is by far my favorite season! i love pumpkin patches, apple picking, warm apple cider and donuts, cool weather...i could go on and on! *sigh*

the colors i chose for this card are very fall-themed: greens, brown and orange. i (finally!!) used the masking technique for the sun/moon (depending on what time of day you think it is!). i really liked how the white stamp ink made it look all misty and a just a touch spooky. i hand cut the 'hills', and i really like how the olive green and lime green patterned cardstocks almost don't go together. but i think they work! i popped up the top layer of hills to add dimension, as well as the sentiment - which i stamped using the hero arts individual letters clear acrylic stamps!

i have to admit, the pumpkins are my favorite part!! i made them using orange buttons, a tiny cut of very thin lime green ribbon (for the leaf), and an even tinier cut of twine for the pumpkin stems. cute! i also incorporated the twine by wrapping it around the card and under/over part of the sentiment.

i really hope you like this card as much i do! it just feels homey and welcoming to me, what do you think?

enjoy! :)
