Falling For Fall

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  I don't know about you, but I am loving the cooler days and crisp fall evenings lately!  It was my first summer in Alabama and it was hot, hot, hot!  Fall is ever so welcome this year!  Anyway, I'm popping in this morning to share my DT card for this week's Copic/Promarker Challenge on The Outlawz site.  This week's theme is "Anything Goes".  My card is also for a couple other of my favorite challenges - Mo's DP2 Challenge #101, which was to use autumn colors and The Play Date Cafe Challenge #100.

Here is the color story for PDCC100:

Here is my card for all three challenges:

I started with a 5 1/2 " square card base of Papertrey Orange Zest and layered with Papertrey Summer Sun and New Leaf.  My dotted patterned papers are from the K & Co. Kelly Panacci Halloween collection. My cute Mo's image is called "Raking".  You can find it in Mo's store here.  I printed him on Cryogen Iridescent and colored with Copic markers.  I lightly sponged in a cloudy sky with SU Soft Sky and the ground with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink.  Some rick rack, a button die cut and a tiny raffia bow finished my card.

Be sure to visit the Copic/Promarker Challenge and feast your eyes on the amazing cards made by my CPC teammates and Dawn, our outstanding guest designer for September!  This week's challenge will run a few days longer than usual because the next CPC challenge will be for The Outlawz 1000 Member Party!  We are gearing up for one incredible celebration!  You can check out all the details on main page of The Outlawz site!  I assure you this is a party you won't want to miss! Mark your calendars for the Monday, October 3 at 12:01 AM when all the fun and games begin!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
