Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Week 2

Wow, we had over 130 ladies participate in the first Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge last week. That is so awesome and the cards that the ladies made were so wonderful and proves how many ubber talented ladies there are in this group.

Here is my Fall limited embellishment card for Challenge Week 2 hosted by Sandy:



The challenge is to make a Fall themed card and only use two embellishments. If the challenge police are watching I am under arrest as I have 3 embellishments :)

One of the things that I loved to do as a child in the fall was rake leaves. I used to rake them into a house and make rooms or just into a pile to jump into. My kids carried on the tradition and now my grandkids love my huge maple tree in the front yard which offers the same raking party in the fall.

I colored the image with copic markers and sponged with Tim Holtz distress ink. The maple leaves are a MS maple leaf punch and I sponged the edges. I used paint chips for the punched leaves instead of cs. The large maple leaf is a silk maple leaf purchased at Michaels. The Autumn brad was in a dollar bin pack at Target.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Blog Design Team's creatioins for week 2 and we would love to have you participate this week.

I love this, you have coloured it in so vibrantly and you can just imaging laying on all the leaves can't you? Shhh, I think we can keep quiet about the embellishments you can pass if it were up to me.
