good works...

Hey friends!! Happy 1st of November!! Can't believe the year is almost over... crazy!!  Popping in with a card that I made for this week's Viva La Verve sketch challenge as well as Color Throwdown.  Haven't played in a Color Throwdown challenge in ages due to one thing or another and so I really wanted to get something done using the current combo of rust, aqua and grey.  I pulled out a pad of My Mind's Eye Halloween paper... yes, Halloween and found the perfect papers for my card. The stamps I used are the newly released Verve set Good Work, as well as the matching flower dies.  I went a little lighter on the grey since a darker one didn't look quite as nice with the patterned papers as the light grey did.  The main panel was die cut from the light grey and then the small panel from the aqua patterned using the A Jillian Vance Design Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop dies.  I absolutely love those dies!  They are in the category of one of my best crafting purchases ever, lol!!  I don't know what I did without them.   The banner was cut from some rust and cream polka dot paper.  I also used the patterned papers to make the flower, as well as for the leaves.  I thought the grey panel looked a little plain so I did some partial embossing using the Stampin Up! Decorative Dots embossing folder.  Layered everything up and then added a little bit of twine to finish things off.
