Thank You!

Happy Sunday!   I have a card to share today.  I am playing along with two challenges.  I am playing along with this week's Papertrey Inks Make It Monday Challenge and I am using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

For the MIM Challenge we are to combine mix florals/foliage stamps.   I combined Mums the Word and Paper Clippings:  Thankful for You.  I just think these flowes and sprig thingys work fabulously together.  

I stamped and die cut all of the images plus a few extras.  I used some warm autumnal colors in hues of olive twist, saffron spice, ripe avocado, pure poppy, royal velvet, tangy orange (MFT), and bright buttercup.  I started with some stampers select white for my card base.  I die cut a panel of saffron spice and stenciled the dots using the Dots Stencil Collection in saffron spice ink.  I started darker at the bottom and gradual faded the ink.  

I stamped the sentiment from Friendship Jar Flowers in versafine onyx black ink.  I finished my card with a few tiny gold halfback pearls I have had in my stash for years. I just felt like they completed this fall card perfectly.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
