Card Chain Challenge Exchange

     As some of you know, each month I've been participating in the card exchange at Card Chain Challenge.  It's such fun to get envelopes from others around the world with handmade cards in the mailbox!  I love sending them out, too, and generally I try to tuck in a few little embellishment or die cut surprises for the recipient.

     Here's the one I sent last month, with delightful fall colors in mind for the changing of the seasons.


     On this card, I used 3 of the options for the challenge - the sketch, the colors, and 2 of the theme options, Autumn (colors) and Cats.

 Color Palette   Sketch
or Theme Options: Autumn/ Cats / Friendship

     Everything was done with die cuts this time - the cats (Impressions Obsession), the sentiment (Poppy Stamps), and the diamonds (Spellbinders.)  All the different papers (not including the deep brown for the cats) are embossed with my Linen folder before cutting.  I also embossed the card front so there's lots of texture on the card.

     Challenges:

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
