C4C309 Barn Pop Stand Happy Harvest

Good morning friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges BlogJessie Rone is our Hostess for October, with Tangii Crain as our Guest Designer. Jessie's challenge is a colour challenge: Rust, Hunter Green and Sun Yellow (Think Fall Leaves)

I was so happy with how this card turned out! It was the Thanksgiving card we gave to our eldest Daughter, who would dearly love to live on a farm.

Initially I had planned on doing a single layer card, but the patterned paper cracked badly at the fold so I had to add Scotch Tape to reinforce it, then layer patterned paper panels over the front and back. I ended up liking the look though, so it's all good. I loved the shiny, embossed texture on the front panel. I added the little vellum, beaded sunflower stickers as well.

Inside it's a Barn Pop Stand ... and when you open the barn doors there is a rooster inside the barn.

The sunflower stickers were added so I could get some green in for the challenge. :-) The other embellishments were fussy cut from a different sheet of paper from the stack.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C309.
