Time for Fall

Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop!  This week our theme is COLORS OF FALL.


I went clean and simple this week with designer paper as one of my main elements.

Acorny Thank You becreativewithnicole.com

Yes, I used Halloween paper, but it works…right?  I usually focus a lot on Halloween becuase it’s such a fun time of year to make cards.  So I always get the Halloween DSP and it’s nice to find another way to use it.

Acorny Thank You

This delicate polka dot design was perfect with Pumpkin Pie, Peekaboo Peach, Basic Gray and Smokey Slate.  And yes I know the Smokey Slate and Basic Gray are not true fall colors but I made it work!  I added copper thread to bring another note of fall and kept the gray extras to a minimum.  Overall, I’m quite happy with my Halloween DSP moonlighting as fall DSP!

If you’d like to give this a try, check out the supply list below.
