Inkspirations Colour Challenge #64

I just love this colour combination.  Makes me think of Fall and since we haven't really had Spring yet that is fine by me LOL! 

I used this week's Techno Stamper Lunchtime Sketch since I wanted to use leaves and the circle was perfect for what I needed.  The leaf image is from a Studio G Stamp I got at Michael's last year and still love using.

I embossed the vanilla panel with the distressed stripes embossing folder, swiss dotted the mustard panel to go with the dots on the leaves (any excuse will do LOL!) and added French Script to the poppy panel - though it is hard to see in the picture.  A touch of brown ribbon as a neutral and a itsy bitsy cheat by using a piece of kraft for the sentiment panel.  

The Design Team has some fabulous cards for your inspiration.


In addition, each week Keesh will select a winner and an honorable mention and post their cards on the Inkspirations Challenge blog.  We'd love to have you come and play along :).

Thanks for stopping in today.  Off to take my daughter and son to a birthday party at the pool so they will have load of fun and I get to chat up a storm with the moms - sounds like a good afternoon to me :)  Have a fabulous weekend!
