Grateful Greetings

Good morning, my dears. How are you today?

I am in a good mood, feeling upbeat and excited about some things coming down the pike. It is good to sit down and make something you love, too, you know? The card I want to share with you today, which I made for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge, is one of those things. :)

Here is the color story for this week - it is time for another color splash!

I will admit, when I first saw these colors I thought this would have made a great Halloween challenge. These are still great colors for fall, though, and here is how I used them.


A beautiful leaf silhouette stamped in black from Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions. Patterned paper strips and a few well-placed rhinestones colored to match with a Copic marker. The finishing touch is a sentiment from Season of Thanks.

Yay for color splash week! Did you play along, too?

I hope your day is great, and I'll see you back here tomorrow!
