H2H Challenges: Signs of the Season

This week's Heart2Heart challenge is "signs of the season," and this 3"x6" card fits the bill for November.  It's a lovely size and such fun to use.  The actual sketch comes from the Wishes how-to guide.  I used the Falling for You collection and the Inspired Words stamp set (on the center panel).  The left panel uses one of the Complements (stickers) from the collection, and the right one is a piece of the patterned paper in the kit.
I used my waterbrush to color the center image and accidentally dropped a dot of color onto the bottom of my card.  That mistake turned into a serendipitous border! I just continued to add dots all the way across the bottom and top of my card.  It actually turned out cute.  My CTMH team's motto is "It's not a mistake; it's an opportunity to embellish!"  All my customers know this one too!
Can you see how I added gold shimmer with the shimmer pen to all of the Saffron and Goldrush images?  It sparkles in real life.

In all things, give thanks!  Please leave a comment with something/someone for which you're thankful.  Be sure to visit the H2H blog!

Nice Fall card. And there are no "mistakes" in card making, just creative challenges. lol

I really like this card. Love the "accidental" border, too.
