Looking forward to Autumn decor

Hello everyone!

Next up today is my card for the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches using the colour palette from the Color Throwdown challenge and products by Penny Black.

After our very hot summer, I am totally ready for autumn with its cooler temperatures, beautiful colours and of course all the pretty decorations! So when I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of the wheatsheaves from the  Autumn Decor die set (51-653) that I bought a few years ago! This is such a versatile set – I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it in 2020 and basically stalked our UK retailer’s online store for weeks!! Anyway, I decided to use it with the Color Throwdown’s combo of mustard, navy blue and turquoise – I know that’s not a traditional palette for wheatsheaves, but it’s a lot of fun! I used distress inks to colour my die cuts, although surprisingly I ended up using Fossilised Amber rather than Mustard Seed as I felt the latter was a bit too bright.

The sentiment is from the Banner Sentiments stamp set (30-423).

Thanks for stopping by!
