Believe in Yourself Color Challenge #CYCI44

Good Sunday morning!  I hope everyones weekends have been super nice so far.  We still have today left, so lets enjoy it to its fullest!  Today I am over at Can You Case It?  with our new Color Challenge.  I hope you will decide to play along with us.
Here is the color palette to play with.....

and here is what I created with our fun colors. 

Now this card is special and here is why.  My nephews girl-friend is going thru her basic training for the Navy.  She is having a bit of a rough time right now.  On top of getting really sick with a high fever and massing out almost as soon as she got there, she has a small case of being home sick.  She is tough cookie and I know she will pull through just fine but everyone needs a little extra cheering up and encouraged to be strong and believe in themselves.  I made this special card for her and it went out last week.

I wanted to stick with a Fall theme as the colors reminded me of Fall and loved the deep rich tones.  I stamped with the hardwood background and seperated them into layers using very vanilla cardstock and sahara sand ink.  I cut out two leaves in blackberry bliss and mossy meadow and punched out some med. sized ovals, embossed each one to create my antique and vintage pumpkin.  I love the added the swirled ribbon and lace at the bottom, finished out with a few candy dots.

Supplies Used
Cardstock ~ blackberry bliss, mossy meadow, very vanilla
Ink ~ blackberry bliss, sahara sand, mossy meadow
Stamp set ~ good greetings, hardwood background stamp
Misc. ~ blackberry bliss in color satin ribbon, lace trim ribbon, neutral and regal candy dots, woodgrain embossing folder, med. oval punch, autumn accents big shot die

I hope you have enjoyed my project card for our color challenge.  Leave some "love" and don't forget to go see what the other design team members have created!
