Kwerener Color Inspiration

Just a quick post today. The kids are home from school. Yep, we got SNOW:) Not very much though. However, it is too cold to go out and play. Only about 5 degrees here. That's ok. It looks so pretty and the sun is shining. I'm a happy girl. I also get to stamp a bit today. I'm trying to get the kids to get crafty with me, but they are having too much fun playing. Guess what they played? SCHOOL! Ha! How funny is that? They pray for a snow day and then end up playing school????
I couldn't sleep this morning so I got up and worked on my card for Kristina's color inspiration.
This is a pretty simple card. I embossed only part of the white card base with my cuttlebug. I then tied this orange ribbon from Hobby Lobby where the embossing ended. Next I punched out 1/2"circles from pumpkin, pretty in pink and ruby red and adhered them along the bottom. They are stamped with versamark using the star from SU's Small Sayings. Next I punched out 2 more circles (1 1/4 and 1 3/8") and embossed them as well. The center circle (1 3/4") was stamped with Say it with Scallops in Ruby Red. I then layered a circle ring made by first punching the pumpkin cardstock with the 1 3/8" circle punch and then positioning the 1 3/4" circle around the hole created in the cardstock. I duplicated the same stitched look on the ribbon by using my white gel pen. This is adhered with dimensionals. That's it! Pretty simple. I working on a few things to post over the next few days. Let's cross our fingers that it goes as I plan:) Have a good one!
