November Mood Board - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Hello everybody,

It's Donna here, and I'm so excited to be sharing a card that I made using the November mood board. I love using mood boards, because sometimes it's hard to know where to start, and the mood board gives me direction and inspiration. We'd love to see what others do with the mood board, so don't forget to share and tag us if you play along. All the links are at the bottom of this post!

So, here is my card...

I stamped the beautiful images from the "Grace's Little Note" stamp set, and heat embossed them with gold glitter embossing powder on a piece of watercolour paper. I then watercolored the flowers using three layers of red and pink, and coloured between the flowers with raw sienna. 
I cut out a window from a piece of off white card, and, using two circle dies, I cut a thin frame for the hole from gold glitter paper. I used the same glitter paper to make the string and top of the bauble, but I just cut these freehand. (That's my version of living life on the edge!)
I stamped the word Celebrate, from the same stamp set as the flowers, and gold embossed this too, In order to match the shape of the design, I stretched the stamp into a curve.
The top panel is popped up with foam tape to give the card a bit of dimension. 
Have you seen the mood board that I used as inspiration?
Here's a look at it. You can see that I was inspired by the lovely colour palette, and the Christmas baubles. 

So I look forward to seeing more creations using this lovely mood board!
Until next time, may your days be full of sparkle!

Don't you just love the beautiful Fall colors in this pic! Here's what I've made for you today:

 I stamped the flower from the Just A Rose stamp set with Memento London Fog using second generation stamping (for no-line coloring) and colored with Copics YR68, Y38, Y35 and YR31 for orange and YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for green. I stamped and embossed the same flower with Wow! White pearl on black cardstock of size 4" x 5.5".

I inked the left edge of the top folding A2 card base with the DI Spiced Marmalade and adhered the black panel on it. I mounted the rose with foam tape and adhered the sentiment with Sc…
