I was stumped this morning. I think I have such a shortage of cards right now (I donated so many to the Historical Society!) that I just don't even know where to begin to restock my stash. So, this one doesn't have a sentiment yet.
I tried yesterday's technique challenge, but kind of failed. I don't know. It's OK. But I do feel like I did a pretty good job mixing the paint to the right peach color for the challenge. I started with some white acrylic and mixed in some distress paints and held my phone up to the palette until it looked right. LOL!
For dessert of a fall themed card, I chose this cute digi and had fun coloring them with the peach, the lemon lime, and the espresso colors (plus a few animal colored neutrals). I actually really like how the leaves look with both the peach and lemon lime colors mixed on them.

LOL - talk about "deer in the headlights" look ! This image is priceless - Your color mix on the Acrylic distress is super - I mix my own watercolors - don't know why I never thought to mix acrylic color?? Thanks for putting that thought in my head . . .

I didn't get the challenge done from yesterday because I could not find my sanding block or even a scrap of sandpaper in my husband's tool box. I like your card Good luck on replishing your card stash, but kudos to you for donating them for a good cause.

You mixed the peach perfectly. LOVE the colors on the leaves - very authentic. Sometimes we get the best surprises when we let go. Great background coloring behind the critters make them pop. So many wonderful details. Fun critter card, thanks for playing!
