Color Throwdown

Goodbye September...hello new Color Throwdown Challenge! Check out these yummy colors by our hostess, Vickie! Perfect to play once again with these new stitched leaves dies by Simon Says Stamp.

The kraft background was embossed using SU's Woodgrain EF.  I smooshed 3 distress inks - Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door and Crushed Olive - onto TH watercolor cardstock then die cut and layered up the maple leaf corner collage.  The sentiment is from the Wet Paint die set by Papertrey Ink.  Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX dies were used on DP from Graphic 45's French Country 6x6 pad.

A big thanks to Kelly Latevola - our amazingly talented September guest designer! I've enjoyed getting to "know" her better and look forward to following her blog creations!  Stay tuned to hear who our new guestie will be next week!

Be sure to stop by the blog of Karola Rehnstrom from Invisible Pink Cards and congratulate our guest star stamper this week!

You have created such amazingly beautiful leaves, they look like they were picked from outside and just attached to your card! That watercolour smooching really does wonders. They look gorgeous against the woodgrain neutral background. Gorgeous work!
