My Mashup Idea

This card is my own design for the Friday Mashup Fan Challenge. I am just in love with how this turned out. You know how that happens? Sometimes you get an idea and you try it an it just works? I love it when that happens!!!
My Mashup Challenge would be to:
1. Create a "Fall" project (it is right around the corner, people!)
2. Create a project using "brads... lots and lots of brads"
3. OR "Mash it up" and create a fun "Fall" project that uses "lots and lots of brads."
I think on this side view, you can count all 10 brads that I used on this card.

This card starts off with a base of Natural White. I also used Early Espresso, More Mustard, Soft Suede, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, and Cajun Craze. I watercolored using my blender pen and ink pads (all the same colors, but I did use basic gray for the bucket of apples). The only picture I didn't get a brad on was the pumpkin. I also used the Give Thanks stamp set.
I love it! Thanks for looking!

So cute and FALL-like!!! Can't wait for that season to come - if only it could stick around... Anyway, this is a great idea! :)

Oh I like your Friday Mashup idea, lots of brads plus Fall or Autumn, for me in Australia that is in March, April & May so it's out of line with the US and Canada. But I like your idea all the same. Good Luck when the voting starts. Cheers,
