Fall Bella Blossoms!

Happy Thursday! I'm feeling a little blah today... woke up with a headache. It's starting to go away but I'm just really tired and just not feeling quite up to par.

I did manage to stamp though! Never too sick for that, right? HAHA!

This card is for 3 challenges today:
1. The Ways to Use it challenge on Splitcoast Stampers to bling up your sentiment.

2. The Stamps & Smiles sketch.

3. The Color Chef to use Teal, Orange, and Brown. I used Chocolate Chip, Taken w/ Teal, and Pumpkin Pie.

I like how this turned out... I wasn't sure about it until I got it all put together. The color combo kind of threw me off, but I like how it ended up going together!

I pulled out my Bella Blossoms set which is one of my favorites. I say this every time I use is, but I with Stampin' Up would have given it more of a chance to succeed. It was only in the main catalog for 4 months or so, then put on the dormant list, then retired. It's really a fun set to work with and is great when you want a big image.

The flower is stamped 4 times, cut out and mounted on dimensionals. The brown accent flowers and the sentiment are also mounted on dimensionals, although you can't really tell that from the picture.
