Fall-to Layout #25!

I decided to go with another square design. You may be happy to know that I did this sketch "properly". That's right, I found a card (in the latest Stampin' Up! catalog sampler actually), sketched it out, then made my own version. I was originally planning to make another heart card, but then for some reason I was going through my shoebox of rub-ons and I found this cute image by SEI. I knew I had papers from the same line, so I pulled those out and went from there. I had lots of fun with the greeting. I really must remember to do that more often, it's a great effect- repeat part of your stamped sentiment but do it in several colours. My inspiration card featured different coloured rub-on words, so I decided to give it a try too.

Supplies: Stamps: Birthday Basics; Paper: White, Cranberry, Avocado, SEI; Ink: Cranberry, Mustard, Avocado; Accessories, etc.: SEI rub-on
