CCMC175 and Grateful Greetings

Greetings, Stampers! It is a sunny but brisk day here on Long Island and it certainly feels like Autumn. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I needed to make a few more cards, so I thought I would share this one with you.

I used the color combination in this week's Create With Connie and Mary Color Challenge. The Basic Black really makes the other colors pop.

This is a quick and easy card to assemble, and features the Gently Falling Stamp Set which is layered in three colors on the background. Grateful Greeting is not a new stamp set, but new to my collection, and I can't believe I waited so long to get it! It has so many useful greetings for the holidays and beyond.

I like how you mixed the leaves for the background layer and the slight touch of black is so perfect for the other layers. Thanks for playing Create with Connie & Mary!

I love, love how you've used the outline stamp in black against the other, more solid leaves. It really pops and enhances the other colors. Such a clean layout but soooo beautiful! So glad you joined us at CCMC!
