happy birthday leaves...

Hello!  Hope you are having a great day!  I'm popping in with a card that I made for a couple of challenges:  Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown.   I haven't played along with Color Throwdown in weeks and that made me sad so this week I found the time to play along... YAY!   A few months ago I purchased a stamping tool that will allow me to create cards using Concord & 9th's fun turnabout stamp set.   Once I had the tool in hand I promptly purchased the Concord & 9th Thankful Leaves Turnabout stamp and die set and used the set for my card.  Since there are only three colors in the CTD palette I used a very light gray (Simon Says Stamp Fog) to fill in the spots left after I had stamped the three colors.   I love the way the light gray stamping filled in the spots but still stayed in the background.   Once that stamping was done I trimmed the piece in two so now I have one more panel to use to make another card!   The sentiment is from the C9 Happy Day stamp set and was stamped in the three colors on a thin strip of cardstock that was then backed with a strip of silver glitter cardstock.  The strip was adhered to a light gray cardstock base (SSS Fog) and then the stamped panel was adhered using foam dimensionals.  Love the clean and simple look of this card.



Hope you have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  MFT white, SSS Fog; MFT silver glitter; Stamps and dies:  Concord & 9th; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Simon Says Stamp

I love your card, and wanted you to know that I copied it. I put my version on my blog but gave you credit. I'm not entering contests, just copying cards I like. And I think maybe 2 people read my blog, so I'm not profiting from your work. If you want to be sure I'm legit, the blog is www.falalacards.blogspot.com.
