November...the month of 'transition' here in Alberta...sunny and warm, grey and cool, windy and rainy, snowy and chilly...all that in the matter of an HOUR! As the saying goes: if you don't like the weather here, just wait 5 minutes! Right now, we're into cool temperatures...with a 'hint' of snow in the forecast. Winter is sneaking in...
Anyway...on a 'warmer' note: Welcome to the STAMPlorations November 2018 CUTplorations Challenge (Give Thanks), where we have this lovely wreath to spark inspiration. The pretty oranges, reds and browns...flowers, sprigs and acorns...so many possibilities!
If you've come from - or are heading to - the STAMPlorations blog, you'll see an array of gorgeous cards created by my team, the majority of which stay 'true' to the image's palette. And then...you'll see what I've created...a complete departure, colour-wise! While I do love Autumn's splendor, I'm also drawn to more 'frosty' hues, especially given our ever-changing weather. Aside from colour, my design pays homage to the inspiration's leaves, circular shape and sentiment. The thanks die is cut with glittery graphite cardstock...such a pretty colour which, I think, pairs well with the purples/blues of the leaves. Hope you think so, too!
That's it from me! Hope you'll play along with us!
Looking forward to seeing your fabulous translations of this image in the gallery!
CUTplorations Challenge Guidelines can be found HERE (they're super simple!). AND, if you play along, you're in the running for the Monthly Prizes!

- $5 gift certificate to three (3) randomly picked players per challenge (15 winners total)
Simply beautiful circle of trendy leaves, Carol. I love your CAS design. TFS and hope you get a few more warmer days before Winter settles in...Hugs, Nancy
Creative and beautiful! Love the colour departure. xx
Beautiful card, Carol. I like your frosty hues and how unique you are! Thank you so much for sharing! Hugs!
Wonderfully CAS, Carol. And we in Michigan use that phrase about the weather too!
So pretty Carol, after your explanation of how you got there, I totally get it! :)
Beeeeeeeeeeeautiful card Carol. Love your different take on our Inspiration Photo and your colour choice is gorgeous. Fabulous CAS layout. You really have picked up on a number of elements so nicely. We have been sweltering here the last few days so your card is cooling me down LOL.
This is so pretty! Love the colors!
Your circle of leaves in soft purples and blues surrounded by white and combined with the die cut sentiment is so very lovely, Carol!
