PPA 142 Color Challenge - Gorgeous Fall Colors!

Love, love, love Elegant Eggplant, Lucky Limeade and Pumpkin Pie individually. And as a combo? Fabulous! They whisper the beauty of Fall to me, so it was a no-brainer to choose the stamp set Gently Falling for my card. Since the three colors are each so bold, i decided to go primarily with Limeade and use Eggpant and Pumpkin as accents. I you look closely you can see that I used the rock 'n roll method to introduce a little Pumpkin on the cut out leaves. <
I love the texture of the Woodgrain embossing folder. It is available in the Holiday mini-catalog until January 2nd. (I have my fingers crossed that it will be carried over to the next main Catalog and Idea Book. But if you love it like I do, grab it now just in case...) I was hesitant to stamp a final greeting on the card itself - I always seem to botch it a bit - especially if I really like the card. Happens to you, too? That's where the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and the Bitty Framelits come to the rescue! A perfect greeting ~ no sweat. A little linen thread and a Pumpkin button complete the fall look.
If you would like more information, please e-mail me. In the future I promise to post more details in my blog, but today I am in a wee bit of a hurry ~ I am off to hold my brand-spanking-new granddaughter Allison who arrived last night. She joins big sister Avery and cousins Addie and Ryan. Life is good
