{Thank You in Woodgrain}


Lets give a hip-hip-hooray for Friday and Labor Day weekend here in the USA! It is still way too hot but it looks like a cool down is finally on the horizon. Today I am very happy to be playing along with this weeks 100th Challenge at ColorQ . This week the challenge was to create a card using a sketch and favorite past color combo. Here is the color combination I chose:
 

Aren't those colors beautiful! This week I am also playing along with the Create: Card Blog Challenge which was to use "woodgrain" on a card and this weeks Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger Challenge. I was inspired this week by the beautiful neutral tones, and woodgrain head board of the Tuesday Trigger inspiration picture. To create my card I used a stamp I received from PaperCrafts magazine last year from "Papeterie" called Margaret. I love the vintage feel of this set and I thought it would be a great fit with the colors I chose. I used my A Muse Studio woodgrain stamp to create the background. Next I stamped the large doily multiple times in kraft colored ink. I added ribbon and lace from Making Memories to accent my card. I added machine stitching, (of course) a button tied with A Muse Studio Twine, and a pretty little rosette.  I finished off my card by stamping the sentiment. I hope that you have a wonderful, and safe weekend, and as always thank you for visiting my blog today!

Today I am playing along with the following challenges:

I love your take on the trigger this week. I like that ribbon, it looks fuzzy, almost like suede.
