Pollycraft Challenge "Autumn Colors"

Here is another challenge from "Pollycraft". We are to use "Autumn Colors". I chose to create a birthday card in these colors. The image I used is from Pollycraft and is called "Cuthbert Balloons". Isn't he just the cutest little bear? You will find Cuthbert here in several different situations along with his fairy friends, and monster pals, and robot cuties, and lots of other sweet characters to spark your creative imagination. Check out the store and the blog for some fantastic inspiration from the very talented DT. You'll love what you see.
Here is my card. This is a square card. It looks a little rectangle because it's slightly open so it will stand up. A close up of Cuthbert is Below.

Cuthbert and his balloons were colored with Copics. Balloon strings are bronze cord from S.U. His eyes, nose and all the balloons are coated with Crystal laquer to make them shine. A view of the inside of the card is Below.

The sentiment is from TLC. Papers are S.U. "Ridinghood Red" and Papertrey "Summer Sunrise". Black is from stash and I'm sorry I don't know the manufacturer of the DP as I've had these for years and there is no lable anywhere on them. The Gems are from "Studio 18" which I bought at Michaels. The ribbon is Offray. I used a S.U. punch for the upper and lower right hand corner embellishments.

It's so great to have a break from the "Steaming Hot" summer weather here in Michigan! I'm so looking forward to the cooler weather of fall (But not the mess after fall!). I love autumn temperatures and the gorgeous colors! I loved using these colors on my card!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I appreciate your interest and love to read your comments.
