Fab Friday #51

It's FAB FRIDAY, people!!! (Isn't EVERY Friday FABULOUS???) I'm particularly excited about my creation this week. I seem to be having a love affair with all things natural ... burlap, natural ribbon, linen thread, wood elements ... so for the sketch challenge this week I kinda let myself go!

The little Autumn Wood Elements kinda have my heart right now ... they are so.stinkin.adorable!!! I am kind of at that spot where you LOVE them so much that you hate to actually USE them!!! (and I have TONS of little containers, packages and boxes FULL of lovely little embellishments I just couldn't BEAR to use lest I ran out of them!! Sigh ... it's kind of a problem at my house ...)

Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners
Paper: Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Color Me Autumn DSP, Motley Monsters DSP
Ink: Soft Suede
Accessories: Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Bitty Banners Framelits, Autumn Wooden Elements, Linen Thread, Burlap Ribbon, Chevron Natural Ribbon, Gold Sequin Trim, Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

Don't let the stars intimidate you into actually having to USE a STAR shape ... once I was able to unhinge my brain from THAT, the rest came easily ...

Here's a link to the Fab Friday Challenge Blog so you can play along:

I ALSO used this card for my hostessing duties over on SCS ... today's Free for All Challenge was entitled "Au Naturale" ... I felt VERY inspired by natural fibers on this one!

From Millan.NetTGIF!!! Woot!! WOOT!!!

This is totally gorgeous, Wendy. I love all the different textures and the lovely subtle colours. I had to laugh at what you said about your embellishments - I hoard things for exactly the same reason, that if I use them, they've gone for good! I get them out and stroke them every now and then!

Love the gorgeous textures on this card Wendy! I know what you mean about hoarding embellishments - glad it's not just me! I love these wooden elements so much I set myself a challenge to use a whole pot - and I'm almost there! Nice to see your using yours - they are the perfect finishing touch for this card.
