Out of Season

I'm glad so many of you enjoyed yesterday's rather, ahem, crazy post. Some days are just like that...ADD rabbit trails and earworms.

Have you noticed how Target already has swimsuits out? Seriously? We're currently getting four inches of snow and have a low of 12 degrees tonight. Out of season, indeed.

This tendency to do things out of season can be good, though, and can keep you from going crazy by reminding you that the seasons DO pass! My favorite season is fall, so when I saw this color combo on Pinterest, I knew I needed to make a Thanksgiving card with it, even though it's winter and Thanksgiving is so very far away.

I even kinda sorta kept the style of the original piece, which is really lovely.

There's a lot going on here, especially for me. But I love these colors, and it's hard for me to work with so many in a CAS design. They're just so pleasing to the eye! And I never would have put them together without the inspiration piece.

And yes, this was my second attempt at getting that random stamping so nicely balanced. First attempt was appalling.

Thanksgiving Blessings to each of you.

  1. You've captured your inspiration beautifully!

  2. This card is so lovely. I like that your stamped images do not overlap. That keeps them looking crisp and precise and makes me so happy. Thanksgiving blessings to you, too.

  3. Lovely balance and a beautiful card!

  4. What a fabulous color combo -- way to be inspired!

  5. The colours are beautiful together and I love the arrangement of all your elements.
