Hi there!!!  Are you enjoying my Friday posts for the As You See It Design Team?  I’m sure enjoying making these projects with the awesome inspiration from the challenge blog.  I combined this week’s color challenge with a few other ones so I’ll list those below.  🙂

Super simple card for you today!  I LOVE the sketch from over at Retro Sketches and I thought a simple layout would be best for this bright and funky color combination of Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Gumball Green.  I only used ONE stamp set on this project!  (Ok, that’s like, a miracle for me!)  I’ve been loving the fun and surprise of getting a new Best of set each month featuring a theme and best selling stamps fitting that theme from the 25 years SU! has been in business!!!  The set I used here was the Best of Autumn!  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!  *Side Note:  The Best of Christmas released on October 1st and is going to have to be mine!!!  It’s so awesome!

As far as details, I have just a couple here.  The greeting was stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto the Gumball Green cardstock.  I added a couple of pearls to mimic the dots in the sketch.  Then I used a temporary adhesive to layer the Gumball Green cardstock piece onto my leaf stamped Whisper White panel and used straight piercing template from the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack (along with a Paper Piercer and Stampin’ Pierce Mat) to pierce holes that would outline the Gumball Green piece.  It’s easier to see in person.  Then I popped the Gumball Green piece up on Stampin’ Dimensionals and onto the Whisper White piece.  This whole panel then was glued to a Pumpkin Pie card base.  I tied some Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon around the top to finish it off!  (I did a bow instead of a knot this time to add a little more weight on the left side of the card to balance it a bit more.)

Head on over to the As You See It Challenge Blog and play along!!!
