Give Thanks - Colour Throwdown #212

Good Morning!

I'm excited to announce that the Colour Throwdown Team has invited me to be a guest designer with them for the month of October!

Today's colours come from this....

I was ispired by both the fall colours and that picket fence :)
I started by stamping the tree in Early Espresso and all the leaves with Riding Hood Red and More Mustard. The little bird was stamped in Blue Bayou(needs some re-inker), then cut out and popped up. The picket fence was made from some Sahara Sand. I embossed a piece of More Mustard with a new Cuttlebug Folder.
I couldn't find any Early Espresso cardstock so I subbed in Choc Chip ;)
Stamps: Season of Friendship(SU), Year of Sentiments(Taylored Expressions); Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Naturals Ivory; Inks: Blue Bayou, Early Espresso, More Mustard, Riding Hood Red; Accessories: CB embossing Folder, MFT Fence Die, Sewing, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

I LOVE this, Dawn! Love that you let the mustard and sand be the dominant colors, which really made the adorable blue bird pop! And I love that embossed background. I'm SO glad you're joining us this month!!
