Grateful For YOU!!!

For All Things....What a perfect stamp set to bring us into the fall mindset.  We start thinking about Thanksgiving and how we are grateful for everyone around us (and if you're not....why you hangin out with them?).

This card was inspired by some new fun accessories in the Holiday Catalog!  The Color Me Autumn Designer Washi Tape and Autumn Wooden Elements gave me chills....whoo I'm so excited :)

The color combo came straight from the WASHI TAPE!   Now how easy was that???  Love the coordination between paper, ink, and accessories!

The new Blackberry Bliss color is such a great color for fall.  It's a nice hue...not too dark and not too light.  That perfect color to bring out the yellows and oranges during this season.

My accent piece from the Autumn Wooden Elements was colored with a sponge dauber and then dried lightly with the embossing tool.  You can let it air dry, but that'll take a bit.  The reason I used a sponge dauber was to the wooden piece wasn't too saturated with ink. I still wanted to see the wood grain to give another bit of texture to the card.

The card itself would be very universal just by swapping out the saying.  Birthday, sympathy, thanks, and many more greetings would be appropriate.

I hope you enjoyed my card!  Please leave a little note about what your favorite element was.
