CTD269 - Count Your Blessings

Thanks for stopping by for Color Throwdown 269! This week Vickie's turn to host the challenge. For inspiration she chose these pretty fall colors, perfect with Thanksgiving only a week away! I am really looking forward to some great family time and having all my children home at the same time!

Here is my card using the colors in the challenge. I am using MFT's Sunny Day Doodles Sweet Little Memories Stamp Set.

I highlighted the sentiment with Copic Markers. The create the background patterns I used the Woodgrain Background Rubber Cling Stamp. I stamped with Kraft Ink on Kraft Cardstock. The plaid patterned is stamped with the Textile Backgrounds Stamp Set with Orange Fizz Ink on Orange Fizz Cardstock.

I used the Fall Foliage Stamp Set and the coordinating Fall Foliage Die-namics to add the leaves and the acorn. I also used the More Washi Patterns Stamp Set and Washi Tape Die-namics to add the washi tape accents. 

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the  Fall Foliage Stamp Set. 

Hope you have a chance to play along!
