Digital Tuesday Challenge: 'A Clean and Simple Fall Card'

Before I get started on the details of today's Digital Tuesday Challenge, I must announce my Blogaversary Blog Candy Winner. Thanks so much to everyone who participated in my blogaversary by leaving sweet comments, becoming followers, and/or linking my blog candy to your blog. I really appreciate it. Now, THE WINNER IS:

PATTI J!!!!!!

Congratulations Patti. I've already emailed you asking you to send me your address so I can get your goodies out to you a.s.a.p.

Now, onto today's Digital Tuesday Challenge: make a Clean and Simple Fall Card. This is the second time we were asked to make a clean and simple card on our challenge blog, and the it was the second time many of us designers struggled. Most of us are not CAS card makers, that's why. But we all tried. Here is my attempt. LOL! The sponsor this week is KLM Designs. She is giving this week's randomly chosen winner these three digital images. The image I used for my design is also from KLM Designs and is called 'Back to School Brett'. Isn't he a cutie?

To make my card I printed the image out and colored it with Copic Markers. I then cut it out and colored it with Copic Markers. Brett is also mounted up on dimensionals. The sentiment and book image are from a retired Stampin Up! set called 'Golden Rule Days'. The pencils are
buttons I bought on clearance at Joanne's. Aren't they adorable? Below is a close up so you can see the coloring.
If you'd like to play along with us this week, simply click on the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blinkie in my side bar and it will take you straight to the challenge blog where you will receive further instructions. Have a great day! Amy
