Perfect Sentiments Challenge 05: Thanksgiving with Brads or Eyelets

Hello there! It's Wednesday and that means it's time to get your challenge on over at The Perfect Sentiment.


The Challenge: create a card that reflects a sentiment of Thanksgiving/Fall
The Twist: use eyelets or brads on your card




I used jumbo brads and I didn't realize how large they really were. I guess the word "jumbo" should have been my clue. LOL! My leaf is from Prima and it's from my stash. I found this on the clearance at Michael's last year in all sorts of colors and just knew that I would need them for my cards. Yeah, it's my first time using one! I used an older stamp set from CTMH that may be retired by now. It's called Autumn Splendor. First time using it too. I am such a hoarder! You'll recognize that Designer Series Paper as Fall Flowers from SU. I used one of my last two pieces of Really Rust cardstock for the card base.



My card also qualifies for two more challenges:

The Paper Players: add a fall element to your card
Stampin Sister's in Christ: use fall colors in your creation- crimson, orange, and gold or similar


Let's have one final look:
