Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16

Ok, I have one more card to share. Aside from the Moxie Fab challenges, I first created this card last night for Dawn's Challenge. Isn't it crazy that the holiday's are just around the corner? Making cards this early for Christmas and Thanksgiving is surely unusual for me, but I like it, and I think it's getting me excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas! Now the wheels in my head are turning on what to make for my Christmas card this year. With all these challenges and inspiration, and "practice" I've been getting in, maybe I will be able to come up with something and get it done early this year. Instead of being rushed and getting my cards out last minute as I always seem to do.

Aren't these colors so "fally" looking? Dawn sure knows how to pick them! She's so inspiring!
What do you think of my little birdie card? Oh, I found a stamp that I've had for YEARS, and decided to ink it up and get some use out of it! I thought I had lost it, but just recently came across it. It's the little floral background print. I'm not sure where it came from, but I think I got it as a gift for one of my birthdays one year, probably when I was a young teenager??
I don't normally make a bunch of Thanksgiving cards, since I am usually pretty stressed around the holidays just to make my Christmas cards on time. I sometimes just send a couple Thanksgiving ones out to a few people, but not always. And with this color scheme, I thought it made for a great Thanksgiving card. Oh, did I mention I now have some cream card stock now?? Yeah, I got a little "goodie" package in the mail! Thanks to my sis-in-law!
So here's the list of things I used:
  • Stamps: Little birdie by Inkadinkado, random floral clear stamp, polka dots & paisley-SU, & Occasions collection-SU
  • Cardstock: All SU- Chocolate chip, Very vanilla, More mustard(?), & kraft.
  • Ink: More mustard-SU & Dark brown-color box fluid chalk ink.
  • Tools & accessories: EK success corner rounder, chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon-su (I think), & cream colored sewing thread.
