October Marigolds - Day 3 Sneak Peek!

Welcome to Day 3 of my sneak peek to the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog Hop New Release on September 1st. Make sure you mark this date since you definately won't want to miss it.

My card today was inspired by a sketch from Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog. I rotated it and changed it slightly to make it work.

It uses one of the new stamps that going to be released next Wednesday from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, called October Marigolds. The image was stamped three times, embossed with Clear Detail EP, colored with Copic Markers and two were cut out then mounted with foam tape.

The papers I used are from a paper pack from Close to my Heart called Olivia. This is also in the new Fall/Winter catalog which will be available starting September 1st. This is such a fabulous Fall paper and has some of the NEW colors in it, pear & sunset.

The Hand Stitching was done with a matching Embroidery Floss. #722 matches the new Sunset color pretty well.

I added some yellow stickles around the outer edges for a little sparkle.
