Color Challenge: Ruby Cocoa Blush

Happy Tuesday! I hope you're having a good day! Kyle started back to school today -- one down, three to go! ;) Megan and Anna go back tomorrow, and Caroline doesn't start preschool until September 3. I'm seeing some more stamping time in my future! This card was made for today's SCS Color Challenge -- Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa, and Blush Blossom. Until recently, I hardly EVER used Blush Blossom, but I'm really starting to love it! This color combination definitely pushed me over the fence -- it's just a warm, comfy combo!

The background is embossed with the Cuttlebug and Leafy Branch A2 folder. All the stamped images are from Cornish Heritage Farms. I sponged all the edges with Close to Cocoa ink, and I pierced around the image panel. The chipboard flourish is from Jigsaw Flourishes by Making Memories -- I think it's my new favorite product! I picked up three packs of them while I was at Archiver's in Columbus last weekend! Fair warning: you might see these on everything for a while! I covered this one with Ruby Red craft ink and attached it with glue dots.

I'll be back tomorrow with the ATS Wednesday Challenge -- it's a sketch challenge! I hope you'll stop by! Thanks so much for the visit today -- I really do appreciate it! :)
