Thank You CTD319 TYIC11

I've discovered that vacations tend to be busy times.  Since I'm off from work I thought I'd have tons of time to spend in my stamp room creating to my heart's content.  Not so.  I've been busy the last couple of days getting things done that don't normally get done while I'm working so last night was the first chance I had to break out the stamps and ink.

The colors at Color Throwdown were too pretty to resist, especially since colors celebrating autumn and Christmas are what we normally see this time of year, and the challenge at Tag You're It was a good fit for what I had in mind for those colors.  So a tag on a card is what I made.

I got some new stamps from Waltzingmouse because I never seem to have the "right" floral stamps.  I used them on this card and the two-step nature of the stamps ensure that you get just the right amount of depth with the flowers and leaves.  I added some embossing paste in a chevron pattern to the tag which was inspired by the chevron embossing on the inspiration card.  Then I added some splatters to my card base just to break up all that white.

Thanks for stopping by!
