Very Best Wishes

Hello friends!  Today I have a very CAS fall card to share with you.  It's one I made for the autumn themed challenge at The Paper Players using the colors from the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge.

This card came together quickly - that's the beauty of making a CAS card, right?

I began by die cutting an A2 panel of white with the Folk Edge Rectangle die, then I put it in my Misti stamp positioner and stamped the sentiment and floral spray with a Copic friendly ink, the proceeded to color with markers similar to the CC&S challenge colors.

I know the leaves are turning but we still do have some bushes with green leaves so that's why I decided to color the leaves the Shaded Spruce color.  After the coloring was complete I put the panel back in the Misti and restamped it with a brown pigment ink for a sharper image and sentiment.  The panel was adhered to a white A2 base, then I added shimmer to the berries, then covered them with Glossy Accents for a bit of sparkle and shine, which you can see better in the photo below.  

Thanks for taking time to stop by, I appreciate it.

Take care!

Gorgeous card, Stef! And CAS cards aren't *always* quick to make, at least not for me. Sometimes it's hard when you're only using one or two elements because they have to be in exactly the right place or the card doesn't work. You definitely aced that, great job with the colors. Thanks for playing along with the Paper Players this week!
