Friday Mashup Fan Favorite Challenge!

This week at the Friday Mashup we have a special challenge for everyone...its the challenge that won our Fan Favorite contest!

Lisa Runyon is the one who came up with the winning challenge and here it is:

1. Make a "Fall themed" project (it's right around the corner, people!).
2. Or Make a Project that uses "Brads...lots and lots of Brads".
3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a fun "Fall themed project that uses lots and lots of Brads".

Some of our trees still have leaves on them but we're supposed to have SNOW showers tonight! I'm so excited!

I pulled out a favorite set for this card, Lovely As A Tree. I watercolored the trees with Cherry Cobbler and More Mustard and used Crumb Cake for the ground. I only used 3 brads, so not lots and lots, but for me, it's alot! Nice and simple card, to the point, just like I like it :0)

  1. Hi Lisa,
    Love how you coloured the trees on this card and the layout is fabulous!!!!

  2. Lisa,
    Oh MY! This card is STUNNING!

    I absolutely love the way you've coloured the trees in rich autumn tones it changes the whole silhouette to be so much more than it is when stamped in black.

  3. Goodness Lisa a Christmas countdown..84 days.. I guess I need to start thinking about the cards :). I think Lovely as a Tree is one of my favorite stamps sets, I love the colour you added. Fabulous card.

  4. Lovely as a tree looks stunning in the rich autumn colours! x

  5. You know I still haven't gotten this stamp set yet, I really don't know what I'm waiting for. I love how you colored the trees it gives trees another look all together. I didn't use a lot of brads either sometimes less is more.

  6. Lisa, I like it a lot, too! I love the colors you used for the trees... Cherry Cobbler is my favorite! Your card is gorgeous!

  7. I love your watercolored trees! Beautiful colors in this card! Two brads is a lot for me!
