Utah Divas International Color Challenge #9

Hello Friends,

Time for another Utah Divas International Color Challenge. This weeks challenge was much better for me.  I seem to work so much better with Greens than I do blues and I really LOVE this weeks Color Combination.

Here is what we were given to work with!  (Remember that we use the picture for the colors and not for the inspiration.  Check out the Utah Divas International blog on Thursdays for Inspiration Challenges.)

I received the "French Foliage" for FREE.  I took part in a Book-A-Thon event at work and was able to choose a stamp set of my choice.  French Foliage happened to be one of the few stamp sets that I didn't own, so I chose that one.  WOWZERS, I love it.  Very easy to work with and with the vibrant colors of fall, it is perfect.
This may also shock most of my readers, especially if you are a Demonstrator.  It is the FIRST time, I repeat the FIRST time I have used "Poppy Parade" which is one of our 'In-Colors' this year.

The base of the card is Poppy Parade.  For the background, I used So Saffron using the Lattice Die.  I then used the Top Note Die with Whisper White and stamped images from the "French Foliage" stamp set using Always Artichoke, So Saffron, Riding Hood Red and Old Olive Classic Ink Pads.  I wrapped a piece of Poppy Parade Ribbon around it and tied a knot.  I stamped the "Thank You" sentiment from the "Curly Cute" stamp set on Whisper White paper using Poppy Parade Classic Ink.  I punched it out with the Modern Label punch.  I adhered it using Stampin' Dimensionals.
