Color Scheme

The challenge at 365 Cards is to create a card inspired by this color scheme:

When I saw this palette of colors, I instantly thought of fall and the changing leaves. The teal stood out to me, so I chose to make that the accent color. Here in a month, the view out the window of my conference room at work will be beautiful. It overlooks a wooded hill and is just beautiful. While fall is not my favorite season because of the weather getting colder, I look forward to the beautiful yellows, oranges, and reds that the leaves turn to.
I made this 6x6 card using Close to My Heart My Acrylix Many Thanks Stamp Set, and Barn Red, Autumn Terracotta, Gold Rush, and Twilight Close to My Heart Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads. The frame is a scrap of the negative space left over from a Cricut cut for a card a few months ago. I pop-dotted it up and tied hemp to make it look like a sign.


  1. Fall is such a pretty time of year, but I don't like the cold weather either.
    Great Fall colors on your card. I like how you stamped Happy Fall on the card base and then hung the frame above it.
