Autumn Birthdays


Hi, today my post is for a challenge over at Mark's Finest Papers, where Speedy the cat and Geri challenged us to make a card with Fall colors. There no other requirements!
I decided to make this a gender neutral birthday card. Do you think it would work for either a male or female? Maybe the ribbon and the curls on the saying make it to girly?
Details all card stock is GKD PL, I use pumpkin spice, black onyx, and apple green.
I stamped my image from Gina K Designs Signs of Autumn on glossy paper in several greens and a hint of orange. Sponged over those with Marvy yellow and Tim Holtz distressed marigold.Punched out the oval and stamped the saying from Theresa's Sending Sunshine also from Gina K Designs. Punched out the oval, sponged in the same marigold. Outlined the oval and the card base in black. Set the oval on pop dots.
That's it for today, I better get ready for work another 6 hour day yuck!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
Colleen
