Hi friends.  Today I’m sharing a card with a bold autumn color palette as I’m jumping head first in to Autumn.  My card today features the Just Because Stamp Set from Graciellie Design and pretty ribbon from the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Graciellie Design has a great Bundle SALE going on now through September 14th (no coupon needed).  This is a great time to pick up a few sets.
I love having lots of great sentiments on hand and each set contains several sentiments along with a gorgeous image.  I used a set from the Elegant Collages Bundle shown below.

I created my bold autumn colored background paper using Distress Inks and Distress Oxide Inks and I love the way it turned out.  I love the wonderful contrast when pairing blue and orange.

I sized the image down to 3-1/4″ for my 5-1/2″ square card so that there would be a nice border of the Distress Ink background showing.  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.  I love that the images have the little hash marks where the shadows should be since I always have trouble with that.  It takes the stress out of coloring for me.I also sized the sentiment down to fit in the pretty die shape and layered that on some burgundy cardstock so it would draw your attention.

I used two pieces of ribbon from the August Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon (available through the end of September 2017) across the middle of the card and topped that with the colored image panel and my sentiment.  Then I added five 8mm White Flat Back Pearls along the bottom.My card is topped of with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the August Autumn themed Ribbon Club Assortment.  The center is adorned with a pretty Antique Bronze Flower Charm.
