So, this card is a CASE of Lois Bak and I was going to enter it for a Speedy TV challenge. But you guessed it - I was too late. I love Lois' card and I love how mine turned out too.
Here is Lois' card
For my card, I used a stamp set "Signs of Autumn" by Gina K Designs.
I was planning on putting three brads of three different colors in the lower left of the front panel but because I have not cleaned my desk for awhile, I ended up with a speck of ink right where the red brad is now.
(I am determined to clean off my desk of all clutter and wash the top of my work surface tonight.)
I used the pillow top technique for my BG paper but will use more ink next time like Lois did.
These are the challenges that I am still in time for (smile):
Stampin Sisters in Christ - harvest or fall
Stamptacular Sunday - clean but elegant
Kraft Journal - lavishly layer
Ribbon Carousel - fall
Really Reasonable Ribbon - autumn
Clearly i Stamp - fall
Stamp an Create - anything
