Penny Rug Flower

October is just around the corner, and temperatures are getting colder.  In a way, it's cozy.  You can put on thick jeans and a woolly sweater, and go for a walk to look at the changing leaves.

Supplies: papers by Bo Bunny; stickers by Authentique; faux brads by Craftworks; ink by Tsukineko; punch by Creative Memories; thread by DMC; button by October Afternoon; burlap/hessian by Canvas Corp.; vintage twine; assorted fabric scraps.

Even though I made this card in the spring, I thought that now would be a good time to share it on my blog.  Its colors and textures have a fall vibe.

I got the inspiration for the flower from penny rugs.  Instead of using coins to trace the circles onto fabric scraps, I traced around an assortment of small, round containers.  I used two pieces of felt, a scrap of evenweave embroidery fabric, and a piece of old blue jeans.  Burlap, twine, and embroidery cotton add even more texture.

The papers are from Bo Bunny's "Snowfall" collection.  That means that I used wintery papers in fall colors to make a springtime anniversary card for my husband, LOL.  

I love the color combination of blues plus browns.  In my next post, I'll share a layout made with this color scheme.  Until then, take care!
