Horray for Tuesday--Sassy Cheryl's Challenge

Yippee, it's Tuesday and that means another fun Challenge at Sassy Cheryl's.  We're still looking for a Guest Designer so this is your perfect opportunity to put on your big girl panties and enter the challenge, the next guest designer could be YOU!!!
The challenge this week is by the one of our newest super talented DT members, Jeni.  Jeni chose the theme Fall colors.  Here is my card:

The fall we have been having in Omaha has been rather blustery and I wanted to portray that in my card.  I used this wonderful image called May , but I colored it in fall colors, wanting to use brown and dusty rose which are some of my favorite fall colors.  They may not be traditional fall colors but I guess I am not such a traditional kinda gal :).
The image was colored with copic markers and sponged with distress ink.  The edges of the rose dp was also sponged with distress ink.
The scalloped rose panel was embossed with my fall leaf embossing folder and I love the way it deep embossed bringing out the white core of the card stock so it looks like I sanded it.  I also punched leaves from the same embossed cs for the leaves in the upper right corner.
A brown and white checked ribbon and my card is complete.
Be sure to stop by the challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT members have created, I know you are gonna love all the rich fall colors and beautiful creations.
I know my Sassy Boss Lady, Cheryl, has created some new images for you. If I know Cheryl they will be awesome and must have's.
Take a few minutes this week and enter the challenge, you will not only get to play with some awesome images but that Guest Designer spot is waiting for someone just like you!!!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of blogville!!

I love the way the white layer of the paper came through too. It just adds to the distressed feel of the card. Your coloring makes the dress look like it is really billowing out. Great coloring as usual. Hugs, Linda C
