Joy in the Autumn - Winnie & Walter

Here's one last Halloween one.....for those of us who've needed dental work lately.  Ugh...

Hi, Friends......

I am back with another entry into Winnie & Walter - October Color Combo Challenge. There are only a day or two left, so hurry if you want to join in!!

I started making layers on this card and couldn't stop!!! lol... I just love the alternate print - solid - print - solid look that appeared! This doesn't look like my original idea.  It's only (Rock 'n Roll) two kinds of cardstock layered up together, but I LIKE it! (Now I'll prob have to go YouTube that song....)

I even made an attempt at "staging" this photo....tossed some sequins around beside the "middle" out of one of the layers. lol... I am such a lame photographer!!!  :)
Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (has scallops)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Joy Cutaway die
Winnie & Walter - In Bloom: Maggie's Roses Cutaways die set

DCWV patterned cardstock
Core'dinations solid cardstock
Distress Ink in Wild Honey
Sequins and ribbon from my stash

  6. Yes, it may only be rock and roll...but I most definitely like it!! I love the way you inked the edges with yellow to coordinate with the bow and give it a real vintage glow. The die cuts are wonderful, especially with the sequins on your bold sentiment. Lovely!
