Casing Paper Crafts Cards

One of my blogging friends, Lindsey, mentioned that she had the same Paper Crafts Magazine (Sept/Oct) so I asked her if she wanted to have some fun.  We would each pick a card from the magazine, both use it as inspiration, and post our creations on our blogs!  This was a blast!!

Today we are showcasing Lindsey's choice.  She picked an increadible card by Katie Gehring called Autumn Button Tree Card (seen on page 52).  It is so rustic and full of yummy fall colours. 

I focused on the layout, the polka dot ribbon, and the tree as the focal image.  Here is my card:

Now you must go see what Lindsey did using this same card for inspiration!!  And if you feel l'ike being inspired by Katie Gehring (or mine/Lindsey's cards) feel free to give us a link in the comment section so we can come take a peek!!

And make sure you drop back tomorrow to see what card I picked from the same magazine and what we create with that inspiration!!

Oh, I love this, Donelda! A perfect tree, and such a smart idea to use the ribbon to ground it. Beautiful!
