Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #139…Shades of Fall

Hey folks! I'm here today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. This time around for Challenge #139, the theme is Shades of Fall. Autumn is officially here and it is time to showcase all the wonderful colours of the season. Reds, golds, oranges and greens abound in nature around us and this challenge we want to see some of these same colours of the season on your project!
Here is my card, I hope that I haven't forgotten any important details:

General Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). I will print it out and assemble it a later date. 


Digital Image Details:
  • Pumpkin With Vines: This is such a great image for the fall season. You can find the image in Pattie's Etsy shop by clicking on the name or watermark linked below.
  • This image was coloured completely digitally using Photoshop Elements.


Digital Image Details:
  • Pumpkin With Vines: I repeated the image on the inside using it as a mask that was paper pieced with the same texture as the inside panel on the front (more details below).

Digital Sentiment Details:
  • Both the sentiment used on the front and the one on the inside are from Paulette from Create with TLC. For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome sets for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store. These sentiments were recoloured to match the colours in this particular project.

 Digital Paper Details:
  • I have used one of my own papers. It is my Pumpkins paper from the future A Bountiful Harvest Kit. You can find it on my blog for FREE by clicking HERE.
  • The paper used as a panel in the middle of the front and as a texture for the mask on the inside was created using a basic shape and one of the standard patterns available in Photoshop Elements. I believe it was the weave pattern in the Patterns 2 selection. For some reason when I went to check it wouldn't let me know the name of it. Sadly, my copy of Elements on my main computer has been acting up a bit since the last major update of Windows 10. 

Digital Embellishment Details:
  • I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth. These styles were designed by Elif Sahin, Pixel Scrapper.

Challenges I am hoping to enter...

You have until Nov. 2nd to enter our challenge which should give you lots of time to get a creation done. Remember the theme is Shades of Fall. I really hope that you will be able to join us. You can enter twice per challenge and of course MUST follow all the challenge requirements that are posted for each challenge (please click HERE to become familiar with all the rules). In addition to all the typical criterion, you MUST USE A DIGITAL OR STAMPED IMAGE to qualify for the drawing (unless stated otherwise). We would absolutely love to see you use a Pattie's Creations (PC) image on your card, but you are allowed to use other images. If you do use a PC image, you will gain an extra entry in the draw and will have a better chance to WIN!  Easy Peasy right?!

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out what my fabulous teammates have offered up for inspiration. Oh and don't forget…Pattie offers up a new freebie the first Friday of the month and it will remain up for approximately two weeks; so, be sure to pop over and check it out as well!

Well guys, that is it for this one. Hopefully I will see you all very soon.

Until next time,
