Harvest Theme with colors red yellow green October 2020 challenge at APTS Blog

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart is on a mixed media autumnal mood and this birthday card is testament to that! The new challenge month for A Place To Start challenge blog starts Monday, October 5th, 2020. The theme is harvest but with a twist. Chana wants to see red, yellow, and green used with your fall harvest items. 

My mind thought of apples, leaves and tractors but I went a bit different. I had sunflower doilies and reddish-orange leaf doilies, so I decided to use half of one each due to the 5" x 7" dimensions of the card. The foil butterflies had red-orange, green, and a bit of yellow so I wanted to incorporate those. Then various gems in golden/amber yellow, 2 shades of green, and red. The hedgehog was stamped on a bright neon orange but my printer's scanner light bleached that out to pale peach. The olive green with micro dot patterned paper is an oldie that was part of a card of the month kit from Paper Wishes. The black and kraft checked patterned paper is part of a paper pad I've been trying to bash this year. 

Items were arranged into a mesh of angles and layers to give a sense of walking in the woods and finding flora and fauna all jumbled together. Take a look:

Wishing you well Happy Birthday card=
