Thank You!!

This week's colors at the Play Date Cafe, PDCC114, are burgundy, gold, and plum!! The plum had my "tiny" brain thinking a bit. Not a big purple person, although, this combination of colors is fabulous and I have seen several cards in blog land using them that were gorgeous.... just a little challenge for me!! Along with my recent quest to use the stamps I purchased pre-wedding (weddings can know your socks off!!)-- I used the PTI set Harvest Berries along with a Verve sentiment from Dream Big (love Julee's fonts- very elegant if I say so myself!!)

The largest harvest berry was stamped in SU cherry cobbler onto a white bg, stamped the next smallest berry onto another piece of white and cut out with the coordinating die-used a versamark pen and gold embossing poweder on the stems-popped on top with foam dots. Pulled the edges up a little to give dimension. Sentiment is stamped in elegant eggplant (definitely the purple business- basic cardstock is also elegant eggplant- two purples in there, LOL!!) Added a bow with SU cherry cobbler seam binding and SU antique brad in gold.

The colors

I'm so glad to back in more of a routine of stampin'. Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!
