Our October mood board inspiration with great fall colors...


I chose the muted plaid colors in the lower right photo as inspiration for my card...

"Beauty"

These Close To My Heart plaid papers were almost a perfect match to the photo I used for inspiration.  They are great colors for this time of year and I love the  softer tones.  The white flourish die cut top layer looks great against the muted tones of the plaid paper.  I added three die cut circles, two plain and one scalloped over a lacey die cut circle for more dimension.


In this angled view, you can see the dimension on the card created with die cuts.  I decided to leave the wood chip word in it's natural state and surround it with mulberry paper leaves.  The turquoise twine bow was a great pop of color to pull in the blue tones of the leaves.

I like those muted plaids and I like that you fancied them up with elegant frills. Who says you can't have fanciness and plaid together?!
