Three Musketeer's Inaugural Card

This is my first post for a new adventure--The Three Musketeers!  Interesting name, right.  Well--check out this picture.............................

Can you tell who these individuals are?  Jeanette is on the left and Kelly is on the left; and yes, I am in the middle.

This was an idea of Jeanette's and it is a form of a mystery swap, with the three of us. I am not sure who came up with the name and the picture--I think it was Jeanette.....  But, it was my idea to have one of Kelly's daughters photo shop our faces into the image Jeanette found.  I understand while she was creating, she was laughing her butt off and when Kelly saw it, she did the same!  Well--I know when it was sent to me, I laughed very hard myself!  So, here we are! 

Each month, one of us will send the same stamped image to the other two ladies and all three of us will created a card.  We are only getting the image--no additional items. We hope to post the 9th of each month, but that may change in the future. 

Jeanette started out our journey and she sent us this cute Sugar Pea Designs Image.  I fussy cut the image and layered it over background paper with autumn words. The top is an embossed background of fall leaves.   Jeanette sent the sentiment along with the pumpkin image I added to the inside of my card.  

I hope both of my pals like my card this month! I sure had fun making it and am excited to be a part of this new voyage!  Is that what Musketeers go on? A Voyage?

Here is the inside of my card:

Please check out the other Musketeer's cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's blog along with Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of very cute cards. This will be a fun escapade and I hope you come back and join us next month. It will be my turn to send the images and they already have them.  I picked out a bit of a challenging image, so I am excited to see what my two friends create!

Barb, WOW! Your card is sooooo pretty! And the funny thing is - I almost used a very similar "word" DP on my card, but changed my mind at the last minute.

I love the way you added the sentiment on top of the ribbon - at the top of your card. VERY creative!

I'm glad you're voyaging with Kelly and me as Three Musketeers! I'm looking forward to next month already. Your image is going to be so much fun - and yes, a bit challenging, too.
