Fall Fairy is Almost Ready to Give Way to Winter

The last two days have been cold and blustery in Chicago, with leaves swirling through the air and bare branches waving as if the Blackhawks just won the Stanley Cup again.  This Fall Fairy by new artist Rachel Goble is a new release this month from Squigglefly.  I chose all the warm colors of Autumn for my card, but there's one thing you don't see--patterned paper!  This week's Challenge at Squigglefly is to make a card using NO patterned papers...yet look how colorful my card is, just by piecing together different colors of cardstock and crimping one of the pieces.  I added a few leaf brads and some diecut flourishes to my Z-card and the sentiment "Oh, how we love pumpkin sesason...Winter, Spring, Summer, Pumpkin..." which I snagged from the Quote Garden (originally from Trader Joe's).
So come play at Squigglefly for a chance to win!!  All you need is a Squigglefly image and NO patterned paper.  You can get a FREEBIE to play with--after all, everyone has to start somewhere!

Fabulous card! The colorblocking was the perfect way to highlight the image and to balance your card. I hope you had an awesome anniversary.

Wonderful way to create a background Pat! I love those swirls too. Great sentiment to go with this image!
