Harvest Medley

Its that time again. Posting my From the Heart Stamps free digi challenge some times is a challenge of it own. Love this challenge

This is the free digi from From the Heart Stamps (Inspiration). I love this digi called Harvest Medley. For the challenge, I don't know if we are suppose to use all of it or if part is permissible. I used only the sentiment as it fit my feelings at the time. I did try to use one of the other images, but neither one fit into the circle. The image in the circle is from another one of Faith's designs.  
I used papers from my stash. That print paper was purchased a few years ago and I never really found anything I wanted to use it with until now. I used a whole 12 x 12 sheet on this and other cards. I bought the paper because I fell in love with it. The card was made for the Recipe card swap at SSSD. The parts to be used were one circle, two images and three fibers.

 I like this card format, its easy ,its a little bit different and still fits into an A2 envelope. I have used this for several of my swaps this month.

More of my October swap cards

This is the Build a sketch card. Use a 5 x 5 foundation, 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 background, scalloped circle, regular circle and a butterfly.

 This is the Technique card. A "V fold" card. This was fairly easy and has so many possibilities, but it requires a larger envelope and my post office charges me 20 cents if its not the standard envelope. Picky picky picky.

My Mystery item card. I was sent a piece of sparkly tape. That's the green, it sparkles real pretty in person. We don't have to use the item in the form that it is sent in, so I made octagons out of it. I made the red and yellow strips on the oval using my xyron and some extra fine glitter.
Color of the Month for October was/is Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay and Blushing Bride. It all SU. Love butterflies.

 My post is pretty long. If you made it this far, thank you for stopping by and Take Care.

Joyce - what a fabulous card. I love how you highlighted the sentiment from the image. Isn't that one of the great things about digital images, you can use all or parts of them :-) Thanks for sharing you creativity with us at FTHS! Dee
