Crisp Autumn Nights

     This beautiful image is drawn by Shell Becker and is for the Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz for November.  It's such a delightful, late-fall image.

I took color inspiration from the challenge at Aloha Friday.

      Of course, I used my ProMarkers to color it including a bit of gray and pale yellow on the sentiment piece to tone down the otherwise too bright white of the CS on which the sentiment was printed.

     I cut the image and the sentiment with dies from a Gina Marie Designs set.  I matted both pieces with deep brown CS and added them to a pre-made, yellow card blank.  I added only two strands of orange and brown twine and then left it completely CAS.

     Later today, I'll have my next card for Beccy's Month of Holiday challenges.  I can hardly believe I've managed to have a card for each day so far!  Of course, working ahead is possible when you know that the entire alphabet will be used as themes, with an occasional curve thrown in to cover the other days since there are more days than letters in the alphabet.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
