My Sheri Crafts #97

Hello!  Welcome to my blog and another challenge at My Sheri Crafts! 
Brrrr!  The weather has changed from 80 degrees and sunny to 50 and rainy.  I think it's definately Fall!  And just in time for our challenge #97 - Use Fall Colors and 3 embellishments.  Believe it or not, I made this card for a 40th anniversary!  For these friends, a typical, frilly, glitzy anniversary card just wouldn't do!

I recently bought Spectrum Noir alchohol markers and have been practicing -- this card is my "unveiling"!  My first project using them!  I figured flowers were the best place to start.  :)

This image is from Beccy's Place.  She's got so many digis and they are so cute.  And talk about generous, MANY of them are free!

And a wonderful stamp from Just Rite:
The orange paper is a scrap from my stash, the blue paper has been embossed with a Sizzix folder and I used Tim Holz "Rusty Hinge" distress ink on the yellow and on the inside.

 The ribbon is from The Paper Studio.
I struggled with what color to use on the inside!  This is the 3rd mat I used and finally decided to stick with it.  It looks better in real life than it does here. 

So my 3 embellishments could be the 3 I-Rock gems or it could be Ribbon, Gems and Embossing.  Overall, I really like the way it turned out and for my alcohol marker premier --I think it works!

Be sure to head on over to My Sheri Crafts and check out all the DT inspiration.  I think you're going to love what you see!  Then get your Autumn colors out and join us.  I just love Fall and all the beautiful colors, so I'm anxious to see your creations!  Have a wonderful weekend!
