Red and Gold

Wow!  This is my 100th post!  It doesn't seem like it has been that long since I have started blogging.  It was just about a year ago that I started my little piece of this online world.

The challenge this week at Meljen's Designs is to use the colors red and gold.  When I think red and gold of course I think fall.  Fall means jackets and cozy blankets.  My card is inspired by those things.

I used the image Fall Wreath and colored it with Prismacolor pencils.  I printed a second image and colored the crow and cut it out.  I added it to the colored wreath using some scraps of foam.  I cut a circle window in the gold panel and embossed it.  Then I adhered the image behind it.  I cut a scalloped circle from a cozy plaid paper and used the same size circle die to cut out the center of the scalloped circle and applied it to the circle window in the gold panel.

Card measures 4.25" x 5.5"
