Monthly Card Groups

Brrr... It's a very chilly night here in WV. The Fall weather is giving way to the chill of Winter and soon there will be snow and ice to contend with. But while I'm still feeling Fall-ish, I wanted to share a couple of cards and hope to keep up this feature in my blog.

A bit of history: I host a monthly card group where a person takes a turn hosting a month and sends out paper and images to the members of the group and then the members make their cards using the paper and images. I want to share each group with you, but time doesn't permit me to do that, so I will feature as I can.

This is Jackie's card (left), she hosted October, Group 3. I am not certain where the image is from, but he is adorable! The paper she sent, I hope you can see in the scan is very rich in Fall colors and great paisley!!

Over to the right, you'll see my version of the card. I used Always Artichoke as the base, cut the top fold an inch, rounded the corners and then used the paper to finish it off. I also ran {the last of} Night of Navy card stock through the Cuttlebug embossing folder that I thought matched the paper very well. I colored him with Stampin' Write markers with a selection of Earth Elements colors, matted him to So Saffron. And can you believe it - I actually did not use ribbon!
I hope you enjoy the cards!!
