Thinking of You

Hello friends, I hope you are doing well, staying safe and healthy!  I have a card to share with you that is for the current Mojo Monday challenge.

I'm also joining the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the theme this week is Anything Goes.

I'm really looking forward to Fall, which is my favorite season of the year.  One of my favorite plants that grow in late summer and stick around during Fall are Chinese Lanterns.  Earlier this year I purchased this stamp set when it when on sale, knowing I would enjoy using it come the change in season.

The image and sentiment were stamped with Copic friendly brown ink and the lanterns and leaves colored with a variety of Copic markers.  When complete it was die cut and adhered to a slightly larger circle of Bumblebee card.

For the base I used a piece of orange card, then decided to use some of my long, long, long discontinued Basic Grey patterned paper, which had the perfect colors for my Fall scheme.  I used one pattern to layer on the base, then another for the vertical strip that was layered on a larger strip of Cinnamon Cider card.  Once the base was complete a small embossed rectangle was adhere to the focal image then it was all popped on the base with foam tape.  Since I don't normally use much patterned paper, I was very pleased with myself to make an effort to utilize some of my ancient stash LOL!

Thanks so much for visiting, I always appreciate it!  Have a great weekend and please check back with me on Sunday when I'll have my new DT card for The Paper Players.
