Gratitude=Joy

I made this card for Roxie's Sketch challenge on splitcoast stampers found here:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=400454 I used DP from BasicGrey's Ambrosia collection. It seemed perfect for this week's color challenge which was to use Really Rust, Going Grey, and Very Vanilla. At first I didn't like this combo, but it really is classy and made me think of my Ambrosia DP. The color challenge can be found here:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=400247
I stamped my image with really rust and then sponged ridinghood red around the edges. I don't have going grey ink, so I sponged some basic black craft ink around the edges. also stamped my gratitude sentiment with the black craft ink. I added some pewter brads on the strip in the middle and the satin grey ribbon is tied through a slot made with SU's slot punch. The stamp set is Gratitude=Joy, a new set from Unity!

Paper: Really Rust, Going Grey, Very Vanilla, DP Ambrosia from Basicgrey

Ink: Really rust, Ridinghood Red, Basic Black Craft ink

Accesories: pewter brads, grey satin ribbon, slot punch from SU, sponge

I am off to check out what is happening over at hip hop today! I am sure I will find more goodies to buy!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow! I will be spending it with my family. I plan on posting the recipe of the dish I will be taking to my mom's house tomorrow!

Happy Stamping!
Emily
