The changing colors of autumn is always such a treat. Like a paintbrush came and colored the world. One of my favorite trees around the neighborhood turns a brilliant purple in the fall, and is so beautiful against the blue sky. So while some may find this a wintry inspiration, to me a bit of regal purple and a touch of sky and earth will always be fall. Follow the color pattern, or take your inspiration from the graphic, either way it's sure to be lovely! We can't wait to see what you create!

Challenge deadline: Wednesday, October 5.
Prize: $30 gift voucher to the Verve online store!




For my card, I was inspired by the colors as well as the wallpaper in the inspiration photo.  I decided to stamp the floral sprays from the newly released Verve Potter's Clay stamp set around the perimeter of my card panel in varying heights using shades of moss, aqua, and purple.  I incorporated some generational stamping to give a softer tonal color variations. I added a sentiment from Verve's Kindness Matters stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink in the top center of the panel.   I die cut the "kindness" word using Verve's Great Kindness die set. 





I die cut the word three times.  Twice in purple and once in gold card stock and layered the three together for added depth and dimension.  I slightly offset the gold so the purple could add a soft drop shadow effect.  I finished my card with a few of Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.



Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!
