Busy busy

Even though I was busy this morning getting ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow, I still had time to do some stamping. And since I am now just sitting in my statistics class while they take an exam, I can tell you a little more about it. :)

Stampin' Up! posted instructions on how to make this card for its demonstrators and I decided that I had almost all the supplies so I would give it a try. Then I started substituting just a little. I used Rose Red when they asked for Ruby Red because I have more of it on hand. And since I don't have any Earth Elements brads, I couldn't use the brad colors that they suggested (Ruby Red and Old Olive); so I substituted and used some of the Rich Regals brads instead (So Saffron and Rose Red). Since I didn't have the Old Olive brad, there was nothing tying the ribbon color to the rest of the card, so I substituted once again and used Old Olive as my color that shows through the little holes I punched in the big flower.

In the end they were little substitutions and I doubt that most people would notice.

The darker shades on the card were created by coloring with a VersaMarker. I really don't use my VersaMarker hardly at all, so it was fun to pull it out and play with it a bit.
Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!!
