Pal Paper Arts Inspiration Challenge

This week's Pals Paper Arts Inspiration Challenge instantly brought to mind a Fall themed card for me. I used Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive.

 


My card base is Soft Suede, followed by a layer of Old Olive run through my Big Shot with the Texturz Backgrounds 1 (don't you just love adding texture to your cardstock?) A snippet of Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon floats under my sentiment, from the Hostess Level 1 set Holiday Best (inked in Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Soft Suede of course!) To finish it off I added two More Mustard buttons tied with faux thread made from Soft Suede cardstock. (See my tutorial here.)

 


Don't forget to check out my New Recruit Special here and time is quickly running out for my Birthday Special as well!

Great color combo - the buttons add a nice touch on the embossing!

Wonderful card! I love the embossed background and the color combination! The Pumpkin Pie really draws the eye right to the sentiment! Thanks for playing @ PPA!

Oh wow, I really wish I had a Big Shot so I could stock up on texturz plates. So pretty!

I absolutely love this, Melissa! So simple but so pretty! You've inspired me to put the Texturz Background plates on my next SU order! Love your colors, too! Thanks for the inspiration! Great job with the challenge!
