Thanks So Much

Good morning friends! I hope you had a great weekend! We had a beautiful weather-filled weekend. We've had crisp blue sky with temperatures that require a jacket...and a lot of fun outside! Here in the PNW, we really enjoy the clear blue sky days...we know the gray sky is coming, it's supposed to be here tomorrow! But isn't a weekend made better by great weather!? It was great.

So, with the cool weather, the trees are just a fanastic show of color right now. I decided to use the trees outside as my inspiration for this card! My trendy trees stamp set from Stampin' Up! is the perfect set for just such a card! I'm also posting this card to a challenge on the Moxie Fab World...gradient is radiant challenge.
This is an all SU card today. Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White Cardstocks made up the bones of the card. I used some retired Summer Sun print dsp for the polka dot layer. My trees were stamped using my Stamp-a-ma-jig. I used the same inks as cardstock. My ribbon is chocolate chip grosgrain...and my buttons are an array of an old bluk buy from SU, a pumpkin pie corduroy, and mustard button form the playground set. I also tied the ribbons with linen thread. The sentiment is from Trendy Trees and was stamped in chocolate chip ink. Oh, and I used my corner rounder on the opposite corners to make the shape of the card and the layers a bit different...fun detail, don't you think!?

Hope you have a great day today! Happy Monday to you all!! See you soon! Make it a great one!

Adorable card! Love how you used the tree leaves for the color change, it's perfect for fall. Sorry I've been so quite and haven't commented lately. Hope you are doing great. We are having some great weather here in my home town in CA. Supposed to get some rain for the next couple of days, so excited!
