All Dressed Up Challenge - Give Thanks / Autumn Colours

Happy Weekend, everyone!

There's a brand new challenge starting today at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog. This time it's Give Thanks / Autumn Colours.

I had lots of fun playing with this fabulous new image designed by Wendy Burns called "A Time to Give." The background paper is also a brand new release by Wendy. Isn't it lovely? You can find newly released papers and images in the All Dressed Up Shop.

This is another 8" page for my special Fall/Thanksgiving album that I have been working on. The image was coloured to match the background paper. Since I wanted more of the pretty background paper to show, I fussy cut around the image and adhered it with dimensionals. It was easy to do because the image was printed a little bit bigger. Everything was layered onto a textured cardstock base. The sentiment "A time to give" is included on the image. I punched it out and sprayed it with glimmer mists. It's very sparkly! I added some roses and bling and it was finished!

Wendy has generously provided some freebies for you to play with so you can enter our challenges! Head over to the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog and join in the fun! :o)
