Happy Friday!! Being a stay at home mom, usually Friday is not unlike any other day, but today it feels awesome. No explanation for why, but I'm just gonna go with it! Here's what I came up with when I combined a few challenges! The theme comes from both The Paper Players Theme challenge #120 "Give Thanks" and from SUO #57 "Elegant Autumn". And the layout comes from Clean & Simple Stamping FTL215. I watched a tutorial for the pine cone on YouTube from Valitas Fresh Folds. I don't have the punches that she used so I used the bird builder punch. I also used the Early Espresso Core-dinations paper and roughed up the edges a bit for dimension. In retrospect, I probably should've used Cajun Craze or More Mustard instead of Bravo Burgundy for the little strip behind the sentiment to make it more "Autumn" than "Winter". I had fun making this and I kinda fell in love with Tombow multipurpose glue while making the pine cone. That stuff is great! It's totally forgiving (lets you move stuff around a bit) but also dries quickly and holds really well!!
Have a great weekend!
