Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16

With a touch of fall in the air, I couldn't resist trying out the Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16. (You can see the other creations with this color challenge by clicking on the link.)

My card features the September stamp of the month, Treasures. I've seen cards similar to this on several blogs, and I fell in love with the beauty of its simplicity. To meet the color challenge, I began with a Colonial White 8"x3.5" top-fold card base. On the 7.5"x3" Colonial White main panel, I heat embossed the flower image and seeds with white embossing powder, then stamped the saying in Chocolate. I sponged Honey across the card panel, keeping the center lighter. (Wipe off the embossed image with a kleenex to remove the colored ink it resists.) I sponged the edges with Desert Sand to give the card depth and finished the edges by distressing with Chocolate. A Colonial White Bigger Brad gave this simple card just a touch of dimension. I mounted the main panel on a piece of Chocolate cardstock after I used my corner rounder (w/o the guard) to created the scalloped border. (All materials from Close To My Heart.) Thanks for looking!
