Stampin' Royalty Challenge #93

Today at Stampin' Royalty we have a Photo Inspiration Challenge for you.  This past weekend it was Canadian Thanksgiving, and I was still feeling the spirit of thankfulness when I decided to make this card.

When I decided to make this card, I remembered a card I saw on Sankari Wegman's site last week.  Click here for her original card.  I knew I wanted to make that background fan of leaves.  Unfortunately I do not own any leaf stamps that are current.  So - TA DA!!! My Digital Studio to the rescue.  Yes, it's yet another hybrid card.  They seem to be becoming my speciality.  (I just reread that sentence - does it make sense??)  I think you get what I mean. 

 I have French Foilage in a digital brush set, so I printed it out in fall colours - Riding Hood Red, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, and Soft Suede.  Then I cut them out (fussy cutting style) and layered them to make a fan shape. 

 If you've checked out Sankari's original card, she used a much smaller button, but, who can resist these fabulously large buttons from the Spice Cake suite?  I used a narrow strip of the matching fabric to tie a little bow in the mddle.

 After I had finished the card, I decided that the top of the card was missing 'something'.  So I added some triangles to the corners and a few of the cute little button brads from the Vintage Trinkets.  That seemed to add the perfect finish to the card.

 The Fun Stuff:
1.    Paper - Spice Cake DSP, Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
2.    Ink - Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Early Espresso
3.    Digital Stamp Brushes - French Foilage, Hand Penned Holidays
4.    Accessories - Spice Cake Designer Fabric, Spice Cake Designer Buttons,Vintage Trinkets, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder for the Big Shot, Stampin' Dimensionals

This is a gorgeous card - I love all your elements...the fan arrangement of leaves, how you tied the button with fabric (brilliant!), and the little corners you added to the top. Fantastic.
