Crafty Critters Challenge #10

Good morning! How are you today?! Doing well, I hope! My life has been a whirlwind of busy lately! Seems we are always on the go! My To Do list is longer than I am tall and my Craft To Do list is even longer! LOL

I finished up my Crafty Critter Challenge card in the nick of time this morning and ran straight over here to get it posted! Big grin! Despite all of the incriminating evidence though...I did not put this baby off til the last minute! I have sat down three times to work on this and just couldn't wrap my head around it! Don't get me wrong! It is an awesome challenge (Thanks Melanie! *waves!!*) Here are the rules:

1. Use the sketch SC246
2. Make your card a fall theme
3. Use the color purple
4. Use at least 1 embellishment

I did fine until Melanie threw that "Use Purple" stipulation in there!! Purple in a Fall card...see this is what I am saying! LOL Now I know it is possible because all of my fellow Crafty Critter's have done an amazing job with this challenge! So after several attempts at this here is my take on Challenge #10:

I used a retired set from SU! called All About Autumn that I was lucky enough to score from a wonderful sweet demo friend at a super duper price! (Thanks Kaye!) I hand colored the leaves with shades of PURPLE, red, orange and brown! I stuck pretty close to the sketch pattern and added some purple sparkle-ly blink as my embellishment! I must admit...the purple fell into this card pretty easily and I do like the way it came out! Thank you Melanie for an awesome challenge and gently pushing me to craft outside of the crayon box!

I went to a fun SU! demo meeting yesterday and had a really nice time! It is always fun to chat with like minded stamping folks and share fun new ideas and as usual the food was yumm-o!!!

I have a super busy day ahead of me, but wanted to stop in to say hello! Have a wonderful day! I will be back soonest! :)

Great card AnnMarie! The purple is a great touch! The shutter card from a couple of posts ago is awesome!

What a great card, AM! I love the graduated colors on the leaves!
I totally KWYM on the To Do lists! Hope you can find some time to get your down to a manageable length...and if you figure that out, please LMK! LOL!

The purple goes really well with the olive - your card turned out very nice!
