thinking of you...

Hello!   I'm popping in with a card for a few challenges:  Color Throwdown, Freshly Made Sketches and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.   I used the beautiful Stampin Up! First Frost stamp set and the matching dies for my card.  I had to play around with the color combo a little bit to come up with a combination that worked well with the images in the First Frost stamp set.   Instead of using strips of paper for the diagonal element in the FMS layout I decided to use the vine image from First Frost.  After I finished the card I really liked how it looked, but when I took the photo I started to second guess my choice.  But no going back now... right?  The stamp set is part of a new line from Stampin Up! called DisINKtive.   I really like the way these stamps give you a variegated effect while using only one ink.   I used the aqua color for the large leafy/floral images and then stamped the two flowers using the yellow and saffron colors.  I brought in the brown by stamping the vine image one in brown, as well as the sentiment.   The twine looks black, but it is actually a very dark brown.



Hope you have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Dies:  Stampin Up! and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  VersaFine CLAIR Acorn, Stampin Up! So Saffron, More Mustard and Pool Party; brown hemp twine
