French Foliage Revisited

I've been in love with the French Foliage stamp set ever since it came out last year. The sheer look of the images when they're stamped makes them fabulous for layering up in a collage type look. So I wanted to share a new card idea using one of the new In Colors to make a fall card. And instead of choosing a green or coral color, why not choose a soft blue? Here's my take on an updated fall color combo...

Stamps: French Foliage and Grateful Greetings

Cardstock: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Pool Party, and Whisper White

Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and Pool Party

Accessories: Big Shot with Scallop Squares Duo, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Postage Stamp Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Early Espresso Quilted Satin Ribbon, and Dimensionals

I liked the crispness of the colored images so I didn't do any sponging on this card. And don't you just love this color combo for fall? The Pool Party blue reminds me of the skies on a not-quite-sunny day. Makes me feel it's almost time to get out there and rake leaves. Well, maybe not for another couple of weeks yet! And I'm sure I won't be so chipper about it when my back's hurting from all the raking!! LOL

Hope you enjoyed my card for today. Thanks for checking in. Hope you're having a wonderful day. Sharon
