PIO #40 Favorite Color

Oh Deer Me!  Some sweet and civilized people might say something like that when they see these darling embellishments from the 
Freckled Fawn, after all that is the name, but I assure you I am not a sweet thing and I said  something more like "Holy expletive deleted!" while my mouth dropped clear to the floor.  If I didn't have to use the products I received for this challenge I would be hoarding them. BUT I would be taking them out on a regular basis to drool over their gorgeousness.  They are just too beautiful to use up.  Thankfully there are two of all these in the package so I can still give this card away and have the others to hoard for myself.  AND yes I do know that I am a sick little puppy no tall that far away from an episode on some reality TV show, but let's face it who among you reading this can throw stones.
By the way the wooden chips can be painted or inked.  They are a part of the October Freckled Fawn subscription kit.  The kit is jam packed with lots of fun embellishements to use in your paper crafting, the giant bling I used also came from the kit.  If you want to snatch up a kit it's not too late to become a subscriber, just head over to Freckled Fawn for all the details.
And don't forget this week's challenge #40 at Pile It On is to use your favorite color.  Normally my favorite color is pink but in the fall that changes.  The colors of fall just know me out.  I get nuts over all those shades of orange, yellow, red and even brown can starts to look good to me.  It's a glorious time of year for color, so if you want to stray from your usual favorite color no one is going to know the difference.  Just have fun with the challenge and find at least one other challenge to enter and link your card or project up.  We can't wait to see what you come up with.
