I am so happy about the wonderful cool temperatures we are having. I could not have asked for better weather on my 3 day holiday weekend. :o) I am so ready for fall weather. And speaking of fall; the colors for the Color Challenge over at StampTV remind me of a transition from summer to fall. The colors are Yellow, Dark Brown and Ivory. The soft yellow representing the warm sunshine and also the beautiful shade the leaves take on when they are beginning to change colors. Here is a card I made using the colors this week.
I stamped the Ivory layer with floral images from the new Gina K set Lean on Me. The sentiment is from another new set called Faithful Florals. the layout is similar to the layout I used for my last CSS blog hop card. What do you think of that flower with the ribbon? I went to Stamp-ede Rubber Stamps, the local stamp store in York, PA and found these really cool dies. The die cuts the flower piece with the slits so you can string ribbon through them and then through the center hole. The manufacturer is Marianne Designs. She has a website, but it is not in English. But you can see some beautiful cards created with the companies stamps and dies. The website is http://www.mariannedesign.nl/.
