CSS Alumni Blog Hop #5

Welcome to another Stamp TV CSS Alumni Blog Hop. This time we are doing a Color Challenge. Fall colors! Red, Orange, Brown and White or Ivory.

I pulled out the new set illustrated by Melanie called Wild at Heart. I stamped it on Pure Luxury White with Tim Holtz Fired Red Distress Ink. I sponged the flowers with Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade Distressed Ink. I matted it onto Pure Luxury Sweet Mango. The card base is Pure Luxury Kraft. I love Pure Luxury Kraft.

If you are following the hop in order you should have come from Melissa's blog.

Now move onto Miesje Flach's blog to see what she has created for the hop. She is the CSS Guest Designer this month. She is very awesome!

Have a great weekend.
