A Silly Autumn Card

low-hang·ing fruit

noun
informal
a thing or person that can be won, obtained, or persuaded with little effort.
"we know mining our own customer base is low-hanging fruit"


I modified and cut a tree on the Silhouette using SSS Wood Grain paper, then I inked it up with DI Gathered Twigs.  I masked off the corner of my card and blended DI Worn Lipstick, Wild Honey, and Mustard Seed.  The images are MFT BB Harvest Mouse colored with Copics.  The beginning of the sentiment is also from that set, and I computer generated the second part.  The apple in the tree is the same one as in his hand, just masked and modified.

I found a great sketch over at Retro Sketches, and a fun cue word over at CASology.  It feels good to be coloring again, which is the current challenge over at Virginia's View, and I love the feel of autumn, which is what this week's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp - Monday is all about!  Whee!  I think I've gone challenge crazy!  Thank you all for running these challenges, and keeping us all inspired!

  31. Hi Kara, I am so happy to see you back. I loved your Baby card and meant to make it over, but I too am overloaded with family goings on. It's hard. My AAA work keeps me in bogland, and I am grateful for that. Anyway, this card is absolutely wonderful. Your coloring is awesome, as is the whole composition. I really love the blended circle behind that sweet little mouse. I love the way you used the retro sketch. I just LOVE the entire thing. Love.
