cQc #216 & RS #90 ~ Bountiful Blessings!

Good morning all! Ready for another challenge at the ColourQ? The inspiration photo is just as sweet as can be. I knew what stamps I would use but needed a plan. The sketch from Retro Sketches this week was just the ticket and this is what I made.


This little acorn (PSX) is the first autumn stamp I purchased and still like it after all these years. I did a bit of masking to cluster the three together. My sentiment (Stampabilities) is only half of the original. The whole thing says "Wishing you bountiful blessings" ~ but it didn't fit! I adore this sweet light blue gingham paper. I wasn't sure about the white sequins when I bought them, but I think they look right at home here. I decided at the last moment to add Ranger glossy accents to the acorns. Sweet, simple and perfectly mailable!



Have yourselves a delightful day ~Lisa

I love the touch of blue on this autumn card. The gingham is such a sweet touch. Personally, I've been using more blues and grays on autumn cards - and more sequins - because not only is autumn about rich fall colors, but also about frost! It's a perfect combination.
