So Grateful

Hello Everyone! It's Day Three of the Power Poppy August Release and today the Bloomies are showcasing another new set called So Grateful!  This set has two beautiful images and a range of sentiments to choose from.....but I couldn't go past this gorgeous chair and pumpkin scene!  I don't normally reach for the orange/yellow/peach combos, but I've gone outside of my comfort zone for this one to create a more Autumn feel.

I've used a base of cream, layered with Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie.  I've trimmed all the corners on these layers with a corner rounder (another thing I don't do very often!).  Around these, I've attached some May Arts Mesh and green ribbon.  I've stamped the image and sentiment from So Grateful in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured it with Copics (E42, E43, E44, E47, E87, G40, G43, G46, YG61, YG93, YG95, YG97, Y11, Y15, Y17, YR12, YR16, YR18, YR09, R00, R02, R05, R24, YR31, YR30, W1, W3).  To finish I've added a green bow and a couple of buttons.

Stamps - So Grateful (Power Poppy)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Cream, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories - Copics, May Arts Mesh, Green Ribbon, Bow Easy, Buttons

The Bloom Brigade have so much inspiration for you today, so make sure you pop by these blogs and have a peek!

Your card is just beautiful! I love the colors you've selected and that die makes a gorgeous frame for your perfectly colored image.

Oh, Kathy, this is gorgeous! I love this beautiful rustic chair with the pumpkin filled with beautifully colored! Wow, I love your coloring with the pointillism around the image! And what a perfect die against the card stock. Add ribbon and buttons, and it's perfect! And I love the font of the sentiment! Sweet! Thanks and hugs!

Yay! I've been waiting for this preview since you all shared the banner! That pumpkin arrangement is something I've made for my Mother many times as her Birthday is in September, and it's very Autumn here in Vermont with just those beaufitul flowers in all sorts of colors! A Vermonter's favorite time of year actually! Nicely done!

I'm thinkin' you need to be reaching for those colors more often Kathy, because you colored this beautifully! I love the decorative die cut you chose to frame your amazingly colored image with and the addition of the perfect bow really seals the deal! What a stunner! :)
