Here are the details of my project:

We were to create a project with a technique or image that we love to do or just love!  Tracey's colored images are sooo pretty and vibrant I love to paper tole them, so that is what I did with this gorgeous pumpkin and sunflower image.  You can see from the picture above and below the layers of the pumpkin image. Click any image to enlarge.


It was printed out several times in the size that fit my design.  Then each layer was cut out and layered onto the next one with a dimensional silicone glue (you could use foam tape etc.).   

The image has beautiful sunflowers and I used my Twinkling H2O's to watercolor on coffee filter paper and dies to make the sunflower accent flowers which have a bit of Flower Soft centers.  The flower leaves edges were embossed in gold embossing powder and crystals added for a bit of shimmer.


The inside of the card holds another of the pumpkin images along with a verse sentiment from the set. I love this set of digi images and it is so versatile for any fall crafting and decorating!

My special CODE WORD is MEET !

Your next blog hop stop is at Maria's blog at  http://joyfulstamper.blogspot.com/ she has an awesome project for you! I hope you enjoy the hop and meeting the new Design Team members and visiting again with the veteran Fredders, sharing their special styles! If you want to see more Fred She Said images click here for the store.

I had a lot of fun working with this image and the wonderful way that it lends to paper tole.  Visit me again I have several more cards and quilling projects that I will be posting this week!

Shalom,

Sonya
Thanks for all the sweet comments and have fun on the hop and don't forget to collect the special code words!!
