Color Challenge - Thank you

Well, my kids started school this morning. I'm not sure why this year (it's not like it's a new thing anymore), but I felt very emotional and lonely! Being productive and creative are two things that always get me out of a funk, so I spent some time in the studio today. It was extremely hot and humid here today and not feeling fall at all, but this card I made for Dawn's Rasberry Suite Color Challenge definately got me in the fall mood. I missed her last color challenge - too busy - so really wanted to try this one. This card also happens to use a sketch from Get Sketchy. Two challenges in one card - I love that!




I had this really fun damask ribbon from Offray I had been waiting to use, so thought this would be the perfect card to use it on. I stamped the plaid background with Martha Stewart's pattern stamps. Thanks for looking!



Here are the specs:

Stamps: Martha Stewart clear pattern stamps, PTI Polka Dot Basics and Heartfelt Basics, CTMH Autumn Splendor
Cardstock: CTMH Chocolate, Colonial White, PTI Kraft

Inks: CTMH Chocolate, Sunflower

Accessories: Offray ribbon, CTMH Hemp
