Autumn Leaves

So far this day is B-O-R-I-N-G! LOL
I have a ton of things to do buuuut blogging it will be!

Have you ever created something and it turned out 100000% times different than what you expected? Yup. This is one of those! I have to say though, I am quite pleased with the end result :)
I incorporated 2 techniques from a couple of my favorite bloggers. Paula Pascual and Jennifer McGuire. Paula creates these wonderful gap cards and Jennifer officially got me hooked on Glossy Accents with her fab work.
Quite a few challenges out there with the Autumn theme so why not enter a few....

My Recipe:
Card Measures: 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
Cardstock: Bazzil BP
Patterned Paper: K & CO
