Welcome to Fancy Friday!

Welcome to our very first Fancy Friday challenge! I am so excited to be able to share with you this new monthly hop! Join us the last Friday of each month as we share our take on "fancy", and challenge you to join us in creating! Each month we will participate in a different challenge. . . sometimes is will be a color challenge, sometimes it may be a sketch, and other times it may be to focus on a selected stamp set. . . the one thing you can count on is that it will be fancy for sure!

For the challenge this month the Fancy Friday team is using a color palette based on this gorgeous chair from Facelift Furniture:

Isn't it fun?! I am HUGE on recycle and reuse, and I couldn't resist the vibrant fall color palette of this old chair brought new again! Here's my inspired creation:
