9/29 A Sweet Color Challenge!

Isn't this just the prettiest card? Super "clean and simple." I was inspired by the Utah Diva's International Color Challenge #3. I saw those gorgeous apples and the beautiful colors and I couldn't resist . . . I was off and running to create something pretty and sweet. The apples reminded me of a Level Two Stamp Set that I have called Apple Blossoms.

I'm not sure if you can see it very well in the photo . . . but the Chocolate Chip panel is from the Texturz Plates Kit 4. The checkerboard design called to me! Those lovely scallops are from the Tasteful Trim die . . . not only is it perfect for scrapbooking . . . but I'm liking it more and more for card making, too. The Basic Pearl accents provided the finishing touch. Oh, and check out how you can utilize all the pieces of the die . . . even the scraps as I did on the inside panel of my card.

Have a great day. . . and don't forget to go to the box on the left side bar called "Sign Up for Kay's Stamping to Share Newsletter." Starting on the 30th, I will send everyone who receives my newsletter a Christmas idea once a week for the next twelve weeks! Won't that be fun?
