Painted Flower on check

I decided to give the Make The Cards Challenge a try since the theme has Buffalo Plaid and I like plaid. I found a few other challenge with the help from Buddy Bonnie, so will add those as well.

I used older stamps and retired product on this card. It is so enjoyable to pull out older product and use it rather than it sitting. The background is stamped using Stampin’ Up Buffalo Check, the flower is from Painted Harvest, both retired from SU. The greeting is from a set called So Grateful from Power Poppy. I added a piece of ribbon, matted the focal, popped it up on foam squares and called it complete.

Autumn is my favorite season as I love the cooler weather and the colors as the leaves change. I love mums in my yard and a pumpkin on my front porch. My explanation is for the As You Like It challenge to explain which is my favorite season between Autumn and Winter. I truly do not enjoy winter. I like seeing snow the first time it happens then get very tired of the cold and dreary weather.

Autumn is often a time to be thankful to someone who has helped me. I receive a lot of help from my Buddies and an honored to call them each a friend.

  1. Oh how I have stamp envy on that buffalo check stamp! Your oranges with the burlap ribbon and sunflower is the perfect autumn picture. Yes, the snow is novel for such a short time then it is the grin and bear it for the rest of winter.

      1. Thank you, Diana! I saw this on Pinterest and it was a new color combination for me. I liked it after I began stamping it.

    1. Thank you! I enjoyed creating with these sets. The Buffalo has been out then put away then it comes out again. It was a good purchase decision of my mother.

  2. Beautiful Autumn card. Love the buffalo plaid. The burlap ribbon adds a nice touch of Autumn. I’m with you on Autumn vs Winter. After the first snowfall gets muddy I’m ready for Spring. So glad to be one of your Stamp Buddies.

    1. Thank you! It was fun to create. I am sure all is SU paper and the ribbon is also. They all coordinate if you have the matching colors.
