Back to Fall to layouts

It's been a while since I've made a card, or participated in a challenge. My internet is finally fixed and so I've been looking at a few of the challenges out there and browsing card galleries and blogs and have been inspired to try again.

I didn't want to pass up this week's great color combination - the New In Colors - Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait. I also remembered to go to one of my favorite layout sites - Clean & Simple Stamping. I used an older layout that I haven't gotten to until now. FTL101.

On this card I embossed the background with dots. The butterfly is layered purple and cork! I used a bit of ribbon too. I used the matching designer paper (hostess choice) with a scallop trim punch. The sentiment from Occasional Quotes (also a hostess set) was punched out with the large oval.

Fun card to make, I'm happy with how it turned out.
