MHKD Sep/Oct Challenge

Today at MHK designs, we have monthly challenge with photo/color inspiration to play along and to win some beautiful digi image and designer papers. MHK Designs Team is showcasing few digi sets from MHK Designs Etsy shop for the inspiration. Do hop into blog to get inspired and play along the challenge.

Autumnal Colors for this Challenge:

My take using these colors :)

Fall colors are so apt for the forthcoming season. I have taken mustard color cardbase and dryembossed that with florishes Embossing folder. Then distressed it with Aged Mahogany Distress ink. Then took a piece of kraft cardstock, dry embossed with woodgrain embossing folder, diecut it with frame folder. And used the negative to distress with Vintage photo Distress ink and framed the sentiment behind it.

Few leaves diecuts from Beautiful brocade papers, distressed it with Aged mahogany distress ink,arranged around the sentiment.

Light grey ribbon added and few peach pearls as the finishing touch.

Hope you like my take on the inspiration.
