Just for me!

I classify the cards I make into 4 groups. There are cards I make as samples for my business, usually for workshops and classes, card I make for sale at craft shows, cards I make to give away to friends and family and, last but not least, cards that are just for me. Today's card falls into that last category. Don't get me wrong-- I can still use it as a business sample or sell it or give it away, but I didn't make it with any of these reasons in mind. I made it because I had the idea for this scene and I love using all these different stamp sets together and the earth element colors and the stampin' pastels! IT was just a really fun card for me to make, without having a care if another person is going to like it or not.

Please note that while I didn't skimp on the stamp sets, I only used 1 color of ink on the entire and only two colors of card stock on the entire card with absolutely no ribbon, brads or punches! So even though the design is a little more time consuming than some of the other cards I've been stamping lately, it isn't particularly complicated. Here's the recipe:

Stamps: Autumn Harvest, Lovely as a Tree, Hugs & Wishes, Frightful Fence Jumbo Wheel (from the upcoming Holiday mini)
Ink: Chocolate chip
Card Stock: more mustard, very vanilla
Accessories: stampin' pastels, cotton tipped applicators, dimensionals
