thinking of you...

 Hey there!  Hope you are having a great day!  Our rainy fall weather seems to have finally shown up in my neck of the woods.   That kind of weather makes it easy to stay inside and craft!  I made a card today for a couple of challenges:  Color Throwdown and Fab Friday.    Love the CTD combo this week, but was having a hard time coming up with an idea.  Thankfully the great sketch at Fab Friday came to my rescue!  I die cut some kraft cardstock with an AJVD stitched dot rectangle die and then the little scalloped border with a die from Spellbinders.  I adhered the piece with foam tape and then moved on to the branch.   That is a die from Penny Black and I cut it from watercolor paper and then used watercolors from Altenew and Kuretake to color it.  Two more were cut from scraps and then I adhered all three together.   I had been using my Glimmer hot foiling machine earlier for a several cards that I will be sharing in a few days so I decided to foil a couple of sentiments and see which one I liked best.  I foiled one in black and one in Polished Brass.  Both looked really nice, but I decided to go with black for my card.   I adhered the berry branch and then added my sentiment to finish the card.  Very clean and simple which was exactly what I was going for!




Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
