Authentique Paper: August '12 Color Challenge

I was at Craft Fancy (my LSS) a couple of days ago and came across Authentique's Curiosity Collection. Before I knew it, the papers were in my bag...in the car! How'd that happen?! Heehee...

So since I have them, I thought I would participate in Authentique Paper August 2012 Inspiration Color Challenge...it's been awhile.


From the color palette, I created this card below. I used the flip sides of "studious" and "learning" papers. The tags were from "desire" paper and were fussy cut to be used as accents.

Back To School by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: Core'dinations; Patterned Paper: Authentique Paper (Curiosity Collection); Ribbon: Offray; Pin and Wooden Button: Maya Road; Twine: Divine Twine; Ink and Pearls: Ranger (Distress Ink and Liquid Pearl); Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-131 A-2 Matting Basics A, S5-135 Fancy Ribbon Threader, S4-126 Classic Squares LG); Adhesives: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever) and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L (3D Square Foams)

Again, I used Spellbinders™ Card Creator series to put it together. This time, I used S5-135 Fancy Ribbon Threader set. TOOK NO TIME and ALL with EMBOSSED edges = LOVE!!


I inked the edges of the die cuts. The slotted openings in the Ribbon Threader die cut (dark green patterned paper) can be used in many ways: thread a ribbon and tie a bow in the middle; leave as is or create a border like me.

So that's my take...maybe before the deadline (Sept 12 @ Midnight PST), I can do another one. How about you - give it a try!

Thank you for stopping in!
