Fall colors

Today starts a new challenge over at Catch the Bug and the theme is "The Great Outdoors". There are so many opportunities with this theme. Those of you who are following me might know I've restricting myself to use scraps and items I've got in my stash. On this card that's the sweet little monkey, he was printed and colored up quite some time ago. The embossing folder was a freebie with a magazine, I colored the raised areas with orange, red, green and brown gelatos, sprinkled with water and run it through my Big Shot with kraft paper. Then I added red and gold liquid pearls and stamped a sentiment, which works for birthdays and even other occasions as well: "Wishing you a day filled with smiles and laughter".

This card is also for
City Crafter Challenge - #328 Photo Inspiration (colors)
TIME OUT Challenges - #65 Inspired By Words (leaves)
Cute Card Thursday - #442 Animals/Creatures

The colours you used on the raised embossed areas remind me of autumn and the layout suits that monkey really well

You are stretching your creative muscle with your scraps, Pia! :D Well done!! This card has a wonderful light inside, and I think that the gelatos in the raised areas of your embossing folder with water drops has been a so clever idea!! Very beautiful result! The cute little monkey has a fun face and pops out very well!
Have a lovely weekend!

Good for you at using up some more snippets...I'm trying to do that but the stack isn't getting smaller! Love the way you've done the tropical foliage, as it's such an effective background for this cheeky monkey. The foliage colors show up so well against the kraft too. Fun design, and I love these colors. TFS & Hugs.
