Continuing To Use What I Made!

Here is the first flower I colored and posted the tutorial for it. I decided since the colors had a fall look to them I should make a fall card. SO I took out the pumpkin from the Year After Year set and used the Giga scalloped punch and the Coluzzle oval template and put this card together. I found this ribbon on my shelf and thought it would fit well with it. The leaves in the ribbon seemed to go well with the theme of this card. But the flower looked like it needed something more. Not more color, it was colorful enough. But it needed leaves to go with the rest of the card. Well, cutting out leaves from the Leaves Awash jumbo wheel wouldn't do it for me, it needed something else. RIBBON!!!! Yes, ribbon!!! Make ribbon leaves. It will tie in the fabric of the ribbon to the fabric of the flowers nicely and I believe it did. I just tucked in loops (glued together) of olive green organza ribbon behind the flower and they represent leaves. I liked it when I added the third one!

I used Pumpkin Pie ink on the wheel and rolled it on the Pumpkin Pie paper. I attached that to the Always Artichoke paper, the main paper of the card. I used the gel pen to fill in the dots on the background paper and on the scallops. It ties in the white from the pumpkin stamped paper. I put it all together and called it a done deal!!! It's an ok card. I feel it is lacking something but I'm not sure what I'd do to it. Maybe just leaving it alone might be the thing to do. In some cases it's best to just walk away!!!

I'd love to see what you've done with your Pretties Kit flowers!!! Email me with your cards!

Thank you for stopping by,

Wanda, I love the pumpkin and the flower. I guess I will have to drag out my year by year set and make a card with the pumpkin. Thanks for sharing.

Hmmm....I've never been too big on these flowers but I'm starting to think I may give them a go. You've inspired me again, Wanda! I love the way the colors all blend and flow. Lovely fall card!
