Timeless Tuesday-Autumn Colors

Hi all, I have a card to share that I made for my daughter's 4th anniversary. I needed to make her and her husband a card and I wanted to play in this week's Flourishes challenge 233 which is to use fall colors. Jess and Joel are avid foodies and love to go try different restaurants so I thought this stamps would be nice for them, that and I just won this set from Flourishes for playing in their last release challenge.
I colored it with copics, I edited the photo so much that you can't see the BG0000 highlights all around the items but it's there!
I found an older Basic Grey paper pad, can't remember the name, that had the rich warm colors of fall and it blended beautifully with my colored image. I used this week Deconstructed Sketch 114 as well, added twine and a button and called it done!
Here's the inside! Love the herb images. Other challenge links below.

TT160-There She Goes

Hi Friends, It's Tuesday Throwdown 160 time!! This week's challenge is called Pastel Rainbow. Make a card with pastel colors. We are sponsored this week by There She Goes Stamps! One of my favorite companies. I was generously given Poppy to play with. I have to admit that I had no idea how to color her hair, I did the best I could! But I had fun coloring her outfit with pretty pastel pinks and teals. I had the TSG sentiment stamp in my stash, Buckets of Love. I used an older MME paper pad and added some enamel dots. I attached the lace with TH Tiny attacher.
Thanks for joining us this week.
Kim :)
PS. When this post goes live, I'll be on my way home from a little vacation from Quebec, CA! I have never been there.

Welcome Prince George

Hi Friends,
This card is a tribute to the new Prince of Cambridge. I had wanted to make a baby boy card for my stash ever since the Duchess Kate and William had their baby. I loved Diana and wish she could have seen her grandchild.
As luck would have it, this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge 231 was a challenge that would work for a baby card. It is "Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue
  • OLD – use something older from your product stash (paper, embellishments, etc.)
  • NEW - the newest stamp that your just acquired
  • BORROWED – scraplift or CASE a “design” from our Flourishes Gallery (*PLEASE link & credit the project inspiration piece from our gallery.)
  • BLUE – add something blue on it!
**PS:  Your creation does NOT have to be a wedding themed project!**
Sooooo my old item is the K&Co paper from several years ago, a "new to me" Flourishes stamp set, a cased sketch from Allison Cope and blue paper and button.
I also kept a DTGD challenge in mind when making this.

Thanks for visiting!
Kim :)
