SUO Challenges #28 Fall Colours

Hi All,

I was inspired this morning by my Cajun Craze ink and my Chocolate Chip craft ink, and my SU "Holiday Best" stamp set! When I saw the online challenge on"Fall Colours" for SUO I was excited, and quickly started to make this card before going to work. I just finished it a couple of minutes ago after a tasty roast beef dinner with my hubby!
On white card stock, I stamped my sentiment "Give Thanks" from "Holiday Best" with my Cajun Craze ink. Then I stamped my image using the Chandlier like stamp from the SU "Bliss" set. I used my Chocolate Chip craft ink then I used my heat tool and heat and stick powder ( which had a few flecks of  SU silver glitter in it from another project...oops!). I then used my heat tool and heated up clear embossing powder on the image to get a lovely look! I put one of the glimmer brads from the Brights Collection in the middle to jazz it up a little more.
On the left hand side, I used some of my Victoria Crochet Trimto make a fun ribbon and used tombow to glue on a neutrals button from my SU neutral buttons and put a darling little pearl in the middle. I used my Beautiful Wings embosslit to cut out those little butterflies in the right hand corner. I sponged some Cajun Craze on the butterfly underneath and put another little black pearl on the smaller white butterfly. The orange and light brown layers underneath are some SU DSP (Designer Series Paper) on a card made from textured card stock. On the inside, I stamped the daisies from the set "Upsy Daisy" in Cajun craze. I lightly put the ink on to get a slightly faded look. I hope that all of you love this card just as much as I do. I know I have made a great card when I want to keep it just for ME! There are just some cards that are hard to even think of giving away, but in the end I do! Hope you all have a great week. Happy Stampin'
