An Autumn Card for the Color Throwdown {105}

Hey there stampers!
I have the whole day to myself, and of course, I am spending it creating!

Todays card fits in two challenges,
Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge 293

Todays colors were: Always Artichoke, Elegant Eggplant, and Soft Suede. I was not sure about them at first, but now I really love this combo!

I watercolored the PTI image with SU inks and an aqua brush, on a piece of vintage looking Basic Grey Boxer paper. It worked out better than I thought it would, as the paper did not fall apart! :)
I created the text patterned paper by stamping the PTI Text Style stamp with Artichoke on Vanilla paper, then distressed it with Chamomile Tea Dye ink.

I finished the inside with more of the fantastic Boxer paper, and some more sewing.

This was my first Autumn card of the season, and I'll tell you I am ready to make more! The colors call my name every year! I love Fall!

Thanks for stopping by today to take a look! I hope you enjoyed your visit!
