Serendipity Stamps Challenge # 15

Serendipity hosts a challenge every two weeks....

Today is the start of the next challenge. This time we are taking our inspiration from stamps. You can check the link here for ideas or search the web and find your own!!

I went with the first stamp/s I saw at the link- LOVE me some orange and green. There is  yellow and red in there but, these were the colors that jumped out at me!!

I stamped the seed packet image with memento tuxedo black onto XPress It Blending cardstock and colored with copics. Added some black rhinestones to the center of the marigolds. The spellbinders wonky rectangle was embossed with swiss dots {never get tired of dots} and layered with foam dots onto a panel of patterned paper. Added a ruffled ribbon in green and orange seam binding with bow.

Finished off the inside with a fabulous Serendipity sentiment- perfect at my house right now!! We have had a bumper crop of squash, zucchini, and cukes- sharing with my daughter/her family as well as several neighbors!!

Hope you find time to join us, and...

The rules are simple... play along using at least one Serendipity Stamps image on your submission and link it below. You don't have to have a blog to play along - you can link your designs to any on line gallery.
