Phew! busy, busy....

....around here. Just a few more days until the boys go back to school. I think in a way I am looking forward to getting back into more of a routine. And surprisingly I think my boys are looking forward to going back to school.The weather here has been absolutely gorgeous the past week. I wish it stayed like this all the time! Well, on to my card.
I really like the color combo of the mustard-y orange (it really is more of a mustard color IRL) and turquoise. I stamped the mums from Papertreyink's Autumn Abundance set on rustic white CS and colored in with (what else!) prismas and gamsol. I then used one of the classic circle nesties and cut out and embossed the image. With the nestie still in place I lightly sponged some ice blue chalk ink around the edge. I really like the look of that. Added a cut and embossed label behind the focal image, some ribbon and of course some buttons and the sentiment which was also cut, embossed and sponged. Patterned paper is from BoBunny.
Thanks for taking a peek! I should be back tomorrow with a Halloween project!
Hope everyone is having a great Labor Day weekend!


  1. Beautiful card - I love those colors together.

  2. You are right, those colors are great together! And this card is lovely. All those buttons make me happy!

  3. I love the coloring of the pitcher and the mums. You have the technique down so well. No need for Copics when you can color like that with pencils and gamsol.

  4. I'm on pins and needles waiting for the Halloween project!

  5. Wow, beautiful! I love this set! That mustard and blue look so great together!
