let me count the ways...

Hello friends!!   Hope everyone has had a good week... we are finally drying out a bit here in the Pacific NW, but unfortunately the rain is due back on Sunday.  Anywhoo... have a little card that I made using this week's ColourQ combo and the October Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try.


For my card I combined two Reverse Confetti sets, Count Your Rainbows & Forever Fall.  I stamped the woodgrain heart image from Forever Fall in yellow, orange and red and then trimmed them out.   A strip of white cardstock was stamped with the word "count" in black in and then the phrases "let me" and "the ways" were stamped using red and orange inks, respectively.   A piece of SU!'s  Cool Caribbean was embossed using a woodgrain embossing folder and adhered to a white cardstock piece.  The sentiment strip was added along with the hearts.  A few yellow sequins were added and the piece was adhered to a Cool Caribbean card base. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Cool Caribbean; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; Sequins:  Lawn Fawn; Embossing folder:  Stampin Up!
