Labor Day challenge!

Hey Crafty Peeps!
I thought in honor of Labor Day I would join in on the challenge over at http://butterflyreflectionsink.blogspot.com/! If you haven't checked out there blog or there store yet then you need to pop on by because they have fun challenges and the store owner Vanessa is so nice! I decide for this challenge I would create a custom project life card with a fall theme since fall is my favorite time of year! I'm really inspired by nature and tree's which pretty much sums up fall for me.
The challenge mood board inspired me to pull out my water color palette since the feathers have that typical water color look to them. and the tree photo as well as the board walk with flip flops inspired me to add some wood grain type design elements!
I water colored the leaves on this card and used various sizes to add dimension and balance. I also went ahead and painted the script in the circle ( That is my own handwriting not a stamp) and I really love that quote. I used a light pink distress ink on the edges of the circles to add a small pop of color. The wood grain background is a Hero arts stamp which I stamped in archival brown ink and I sponged the edges of the card. I love the way this card turned out and cannot wait to use it in my project life album! Hope you guys like ( Now I'm off to drink a spice pumpkin latte).
