Happy Fall Y'all

Join us this week at Delightful Challenges 
for Happy Fall Ya'll Challenge!

I just love the Fall Accessories set from Digital Delights which includes this great fence with sunflowers.  I am partial to sunflowers having grown them in my youth and as an adult.  They are big and bright and have the added benefit of the seeds.

I thought it would be fun to do a window card so that we could peek through the grass to see the hidden treasure of sunflowers.


I punched out EK Success flowers in different designer papers and then added gems and pearls in the center to glue over the tulips in this grass die from Memory Box.

Card Recipe:
DD Stamps: Fall Accessories
CS and Papers: SU Soft Suede, SU Designer Pack, craft card stock
Markers: Copics – E15, 17, 18, Y06, YR04, 14, B000, C01, G09, 14, W1, 3
Access. and Embellishments: Cousin Charm, Sunflowers from Michael's, Hemp, Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Memory Box Spring Border Die, Hero Hues Lace, Leaves ribbon, EK Success flower punch and Marvy leaf punch, Sizzix Grass Die, gems, Prima Pearls, Apple Corner Punch
Coloring Medium: Alcohol Inks
Special Techniques: Window Card


On the inside I used lace and a special leaf ribbon to separate my picture window from the sentiment at the bottom.  The metal flower charm is held in place by hemp that I square knotted and ended with a bow under the flower sticker.

Be sure and take a look at what the wonderful Design Team has come up with for your inspiration. 

Our amazing and wonderful sponsor this week is none other than Digital Delights:
