Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #16

Hi y'all! Back with a second post and a second color challenge. Dawn gave us some beautiful fall colors to work with this time - chocolate, summer sunrise, kraft and cream. Check out her original inspiration photo here. The colors reminded me of a sunflower, so I went to town with my hexagon punch ... I stamped some polka dots onto kraft paper and purposely stamped them a little imperfectly. I added a column of Thank you sentiments down the side. The flower center and petals are Bitty Box paper punched with a hexagon punch. Everything got distressed with an edge distresser and Chamomile ink. I really like how this turned out and will be trying this soon with some brighter colors too!

That's about all for now ... trying to make the most of the long weekend to craft as much as possible! :-) Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: PTI Polka Dot Basics II, Scattered Showers Additions
Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate, Chamomile
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Kraft card stock; Bitty Box paper - Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate
Accessories: PTI Dark Chocolate grosgrain ribbon
Other: Edge distresser tool; Creative Memories hexagon punch
