Urban's November Layout

Hi everyone,  it's that time again for Urban Scrapbook's monthly Design Team Challenge.

This month our kits included paper and embellishments from Echo Park's line called, "Reflections" designed by Lori Whitlock.  Love this collection, and they have added a Christmas line by Lori this year too.

I had a bit of fun playing with my Lindy's sprays and embossing powders and also Viva's Ferro Metallic paste on the background.

I used my Sizzix Christmas Cardinal Die for the bird, I just cut off the pointed part of his head.  It was cut from the burgundy cardstock and embossed with Lindy's Midnight Copper Obsidian embossing powder and while still hot, a rubber stamp pressed into the bird's body.  I highlighted a few areas with Viva Gold Copper paste. Some hand-cut leaves and dragonfly from patterned paper, my stamped and embossed wood circle, wood altered frames, a altered embossed burlap flower, and buttons were added.  The stencils I used were from Prima and Tim Holtz.

My husband and I were in Vancouver this summer and decided to spend the day at the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park.  I am a little afraid of heights but I decided to conquer my fear!  I didn't do too bad, even walked across the cliff walk!  The frame in my photo is actually a giant frame that everyone posed behind for photos.  I remember going there once as a kid and being terrified, so I'm glad I went again.  I would highly recommend it if you are ever in Vancouver!
The layouts are on display at the store and up on Urban's blog, make sure you check out our talented team of designers!

Thanks for stopping by,
