September Card Chain Challenge


Feast your eyes on this masterpiece that I received this week from Betty.  Is it not a poster for autumn?  The colors are magnificent with texture and pattern and stitching and REAL leaves (coated with Glossy Accents)!  It looks like a miniature quilt, don't you think?  If you'd like to see more of Betty's gorgeous creations, here is her Flickr photostream.  And she also sent me one of her adorable notepads!

I received this as a result of Deborah's monthly Card Chain.  Each month she gives us a color scheme, a choice of themes, and a template to use to make our card.  We sign up at the end of one month for the next month, and everyone sends someone else a card following the guidelines.  We have participants from all over the world!  If you'd like to get in on the fun, check Deborah's blog at the end of this month and sign up!

Thanks Lin for sharing Betty's wonderful card! I can see she really had you in mind when she made it! The patchwork background is gorgeous and I love those leaves! I never thought of applying Glossy Accents to real leaves but after seeing this, I'll definitely give it a go!
