Fall Fun

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday to you all! Well yesterday I found out that I didn't make the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blog design team. Oh well, I can still join in the challenges on my own, so no biggie!

I have a card to show you today, but there's something about it that is throwing it off. I think it might be the fact that I didn't carry the grass over on the left side of the card more. It makes it look like these kids are playing at the top of a cliff and are on the edge! I don't know if that's it or not. What do you think? Does it look strange?

(click to enlarge)

I used the Fall Fun image from squigglefly and colored it with copic markers. I used more of the dollar store tissue paper leaves as an embellishment, and printed the sentiment on my computer.
I just wish I had noticed that bit about the grass and sky! Oh well, maybe the kids ARE playing at the top of a cliff! LOL!

Hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Sorry you didn't make the team. I didn't either. Like you said, oh, well.

I love this card even if you think they are falling off a cliff. I really don't see that. Lovely colors.

Sorry Holly, that web site doesn't know what it's missing...keep trying, someone will pick you up...

I wouldn't have noticed the grass situation if you hadn't mentioned it...looks good to me, I'd jump in that pile of leaves :-)

Maria Matter said...

ok sweetie you are way to critical of yourself here! lol
I think it looks like the kids are playing in the leaves and jumping off that wall into them....a little dangerous maybe...
It's perfect Holly as always your coloring is superb!
