Now on to our Saturday Blog Hop as we all feature non-fall colors for a fallish card:



When I chose the colors for my card, I had in my head that I wanted to use leaves and wood grains. All of my ink pads sit right in front of me on a wall unit my husband built for me so I just grabbed random ink colors and I love how this came out! I did not use those ink pads I picked out because my card mostly consists of designer paper and cardstock, but the ink pads helped me gather them together for a great color combination. Once I had my colors pinked out I started cutting with the dies from the Seasonal Layers and the Patterned Pumpkins. Beautiful dies to create with!
