Beautiful Autumn Colors Greeting Card

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge: Beautiful Autumn Colors

RRRChallengeBadge

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Are you ready for fall?  I sure am!  The good folks at Really Reasonable Ribbon are anticipating the season with a new Autumn Colors Challenge.  I cracked open my brand new Authentique Harvest papers to create this Beautiful Autumn Colors card.

Now it’s your turn!  Work up a project using Beautiful Autumn Colors and ribbon and link it up over at the RRR Challenge Blog. I can’t wait to see what you make.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

    Lovely, lovely, lovely!!! The colors and textures are just gorgeous. I can almost smell those autumn leaves burning in the cool, crisp breeze! This is a beauty! Thanks for the inspiration, Kathy!

    Hi Kathy, I dearly love this autumn card, it is so full of the brilliant fall colors which I love. Those are magnificent flowers and bow. not much in-favor of the second one. actually I first thought it was the inside of the first card, and that you had placed tea, or apple cider. ….have a good week-end and a safe one, hope the rain hasn’t hit you, like so many others have.
    Hugs, Pattie

    Ohh Kathy, they’re lovely. The first one is breath-taking. So vibrant, rich and sumptious. The second one is quieter, more reserved, as if made for a gentleman. Not just a man, but a gentleman. (There’s a subtle difference). lol

    I love them both, but if I were forced to make a decision I’d choose the first one, simply because those colours are the ones I associate with the season. Fabulous Makes, my friend.
