Happy Monday...off to another week! But a short week as I am off Friday. Yeah!! Can't wait. I decided I needed a mental health day this week just to putter around the house....ie scrap!

I have one card for you today that covers 2 challenges. The first is Split Coast Stampers sketch challenge 240. This was a really fun sketch.



The 2nd challenge, which I really thouhgt was going to be more of a challenge then it was, is for this weeks Color Throwdown. When I first heard the color choices I thought there was no way they would look good together but I must say I am quite pleased with the outcome. Who knew, lol!








I was able to incorporate all 4 colors in my card stock and found some dp that I think really goes well with these shades.


















I used the blush blossom for both the base of the card and also to print my image rather than using stark white. My circle is embossed with my swirls cuttlebug and is the one piece of pumpkin pie in my card. I used one strip of really rust for the cross strip. It is actually a pretty close match to my dp, although it doesn't look it in the photo.

My little image is a digital stamp from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. Thought it was the perfect fall look for this dp. I colored the image, to match my paper choices, with my Stampin Up pencils. My brads are from Foof-a-La.
Hope you all have a great week!
