Clean and Simple French Foliage

I was looking around at different blogs last night and stopped by Shelli's. Shelli Gardner, the co-founder of Stampin' Up!. She issues a creative challenge each month and this one is a two-layer card. This was the theme of the swap at Founders Circle, so I've seen some great ones shared by other Demo's recently. I took up the challenge while cheering my Wildcats to victory over the Sooners!!

Guess which set I reached for?? French Foliage!!

I flipped through the Color Coach for a Fall color combination and settle on this one: Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke and So Saffron. The card base is Cajun Craze, the background Naturals Ivory. I grabbed the size D Clear Block and inked it with So Saffron. I stamped that in the center of the background, then added leaves and splatter dots over it. The "thank you" is from Sassy Salutations. A So Saffron Taffeta ribbon knotted around proved a simple accent.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
