PP67....Thankful thoughts


Happy Monday Peeps!!

Today I have a card to share made with the color challenge this week on the The Paper Players Blog. I really liked the colors when I saw the challenge:


I rarely ever use Bravo Burgundy, so I was eager to give it a go. I messed with this card forever and originally had used some leaves from the Stampin Up
Gently Falling stamp set but in the end I didn't like what I had done, so I took it all apart and started again. I did keep the original base and very vanilla embossed layer. I added a strip of Cajun Craze on the side that I embossed with the stripes EF. My Big shot got quite the workout on this card. The sentiment piece is another EF and I used very vanilla and stamped with bravo burgundy ink. The sentiment comes from the Stampin Up "Grateful Greetings" stamp set.


I made my "sunflowers" with the Daisy Die using More Mustard and Bravo Burgundy card stock. The centers of the flowers are circle punches and are embossed with the square lattice EF. I added a few leaves made with the little leaves sizzlet die. I finished it off with a few gold pearls.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!
