Be Inspired # 54 - Create something beautiful for Fall

Every leaf speaks bliss to me fluttering from the autumn tree. - Emily Bronte

Our current challenge at Cuttlebug Challenge blog is to create something beautiful for fall. It can be a lovely autumn theme or a fun and glittery Halloween theme. Just remember to use a Cuttlebug product :) I used my Distressed Stripes embossing folder on Core'dinations card stock. There is one catch: you must scraplift from one of the Cuttlebug Challenge blog's designers. Of course it doesn't have to be the same, just be inspired by one of us! (You will receive extra credit if you pick me. Just kidding!)

This card is really pretty in real life (she said modestly). Have you ever noticed that certain designer papers do not photograph well? Maybe it is just my amateur photography skills. The paper I used is Deja Views: The Sharon Ann Collection from Michaels. I love this paper. It is just as pretty as the beautiful sentiment stamp (Serendipity Stamps). The shiny ribbon is from my stash, the red card stock is Bazzill, and the popped-up leaf is K&Co.

Happy Wednesday! Now go make a card and enter it in this week's Cuttlebug Challenge :)

i definitely think that sometimes a GREAT card photos badly and conversely, a card that's only so-so irl can look *better* in a picture. but i have no idea what makes either of these true. :(

having said all that, i think THIS CARD is fabulous and most definitely qualifies as "something beautiful for fall"! or...as i like to think of it, BEAUTIFALL!!!!!!!
