Colors of Fall....Lil Inker Design Monthly Meet-up Challenge

Hello! Happy Friday!  Here with a quick card this morning as I join in the Lil Inker Designs "Colors of Fall" challenge.

I do not have a lot of Lil Inker Stamps but I do own a lot of their lovely dies!  I need several birthday cards for September so I made this:

I created a lovely water-color background in shades of oranges and yellow with a bit of darker russet.  Then while the watercolor card stock was still a little damp I impressed it with the "Circles and Diamonds Stitched Pattern" Die and then used the Stitched Mats Rounded Rectangles to cut it down in size just slightly.  I wanted all of the focus on my card to be on this gorgeous background so I kept the rest of the card clean and simple and used a dark brown card stock to set off the lovely orange tones!  I used the stamp set "Flags and Tags" to create my banner of birthday wishes.  A small twine bow adds a finishing touch.

I hope you will join in the fun over at the Lil Inker Designs Blog!

Thanks for taking a look at my card!
