Fall Slimline Birthday Card ~ Inspirational Photo

 Friday means it's time for a new Color Dare Challenge! This week we're challenging you to use colors you see in the photo below. There are a lot to choose from so look it over carefully! When you have your colors make any paper craft you like. To join the challenge use the link in the post on our home page. Simple!

I love the digital art we have for the Pumpkin Spice Suite. Once I looked over the images I decided a slimline card and the spray of flowers was the way to go!

Once you purchase the digital collection you upload it to your cutting machine like Cricut Design Space. Other machines work, too. Then go about using it as you usually would and create your project.

After cutting all the images and gluing them together on the card front the card was almost finished. I used some paper from the Mix-in pack and a couple stickers from the Pumpkin Spice pack. The final touch was to use some Pearls to dot around the floral spray. 

Inside of card. The round sticker and border are both from the Pumpkin Spice pack.

These are the images in this collection. You can manipulate them in many ways to get the look you want. For my card I eliminated the sign and sentiment on the floral spray.
