Charming Potpourri

OK, that title might be a little weird? but it's the combination of the two sets I used tonight! I also combined two challenges-Pals Paper Arts color challenge & the sketch at Clean & Simple. The colors are Chocolate Chip, Basic Gray & So Saffron. Not colors I would have EVER put together! Guess that is why they call it a challenge!!

Here is what I came up with!!

The new hostess set, Punch Potpourri was begging to be used, so I combined it with the Charming set. Card base is Chocolate Chip, background layer is So Saffron textured with the Square Lattice folder. The Very Vanilla rectangles were stamped with the script image from Charming, then the flowers from Punch Potpourri were attached with dimensionals. The "create" was stamped with So Saffron, punched with the small oval punch and layered on the Modern Label punch. I added 2 metallic brads on each end and attached to the Basic Gray strip with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by all! As of today, baseball season is over in this household! But that doesn't mean we won't be busy!! I have Open Houses next weekend, then off to SU! convention. And the start of school is just about a month away! Wow, does time ever fly!!!
