Guest Designer: Painted Harvest

Happy Monday, y'all!  And it IS a happy Monday for me because guess what?  My Pick a Pumpkin card from a while back was picked as the challenge winner at What Will You Stamp!

*does a little happy dance*

Even better, I have the stamp set for this week's challenge so I get to be a guest designer!  Woot!

I do love this stamp set, too.  So here's what I made for the challenge:

I used a simple layout to let the stamped images shine.  And they do shine a little bit because I used Shimmery White cardstock.  I thought I'd go a little outside the sunflower box on this card with my color combination, so what do you think of Blushing Bride, Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig together?  I hardly ever reach for Blushing Bride unless it's a color challenge but I liked it with the other two colors.  I used a sponge to ink up the stamps for the Tranquil Tide and Fresh Fig bits to keep them from overwhelming the soft pink, and that meant I could stamp the sentiment at full strength and have it be easy to read even on top of the flower.

Thanks again to the What Will You Stamp? DT for letting me play along this week!
