Dottie's World Challenge-Fall Inspiration!

Hello and Happy Sunday...yes I have returned from the dead.....well thats what the last couple of weeks have felt can it be possible to get the stomach bug twice...yes the stomach bug is so evil that it decided to return for a repeat adventure in my house....where there lives five children! The stomach bug had a huge non-stop party in my house and almost killed me....
But I lived....and am here to share another hand made card.
Thank goodness for immune systems.

This week Gunn is hosting the Dottie's World Challenge and she wants us to make Fall you need to use fall colors for sure. She also added that the use of GOLD would be good too!
Well, I forgot all about the gold until my card was :o}

For my card I used an image from the Holly & Madison Collection called: Madison So Chic
I printed the image off onto Artist Marker Pad paper-from the BEE company. It's a new paper I found at my local Artist store. It's light-110lbs.-perfect for cutting images out-and it does NOT bleed at all. But it doesn't work that great with stickles....but I do like it a lot because it has a very smooth surface-I haven't tried it for stamping yet.
This what it looks like:

The paper I used is BoBunny-Kitchen Spice. The fowers, buttons and brads are also from the same collection. The bling is from Walmart...yup walmart. ;o} The tab punch is SU! The sentiment "Celebrate" is CTMH-Fringed Phrases. The "Fall" is stamped with The CTMH Chocolate Alphabet. I made the tag with my cricut.
I also used one of my MS-border punches and curvy rectangle nestie.
I also airbrushed the background with my copic airbrush system and air compressor-have I mentioned how much I LOVE my air brush system??? :o}

Thank you for stopping by today and make sure you check out the Dottie's World Challenge blog so you can see what the other designer's came up with!

bye for now,
Nicole M Bailey
