My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 118 Fall Colors

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today we have a fun and inspiring challenge for you at My Sheri Crafts! Challenge 118 is Fall Colors! Marge asked us to create a card or project using Fall Colors - shades of browns, oranges, red, yellows. Temperatures in my area are definitely not Fall yet! Harvest is underway for the farmers. I am looking forward to all the pretty colors of Fall.
For my project, I used my Cricut to make a Fall wreath using a 12 inch grapevine wreath.
Cricut Cartridges:
Mother's Day Bouquet - Two styles of flowers are cut from pretty K&Company SW Meadow papers. The yellow Cricut flowers are attached with brads to a handmade rosette. I wrapped red buttons with burlap and hot glued it in the centers of the patterned flowers. The red button seemed too bright and needed toning down. I do like the look!

Autumn Celebrations - This cartridge was available free in the Cricut Craft Room so I tried a few of the images. The phrase Fall is cut 3". The pumpkins are cut at 2" and 1.5". Leaves are also from the cartridge.
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder is used on the acorn.

A burlap ribbon completes my Fall wreath and now it is ready for the door! 

Visit My Sheri Crafts to see the pretty projects by the design team and our guest designer. For more information, please visit our blogs. Don't forget to leave us a little blog love!

We look forward to seeing your creative projects using Fall colors. Several Ooh la la awards will be given and one person will be chosen to be our next guest designer!

Thanks for your visits and comments!
