Happy Fall and ColourQ

Hi there!  Amy here with you via the Market Street blog!  As I write this post to tell you how I enjoy the fall weather, it is a crazy 70 degrees here in Kansas.  Beautiful beautiful weather!  This is my type of weather too!  All this aside, I thought I would share one last "FALL" card with you since we are now heading into the Holiday season. 

This card uses the wonderful Autumn Greetings set.  I thought I would use this set one last time for a "fall" theme.  I chose to go a different route with my card today.......CAS.  Well, that is except for the colored little scarecrow.  I wanted him front and center! 


I layered a couple of cardstock color panels down the side with one being stamped with the Pretty Perfect Grid background stamp and then stamped a simple sentiment and added a button!  Have you checked out Autumn Greetings?  It isn't only for fall themed cards.......it has a fabulous floral image too.  I'll be sure to show you more with that later!


I haven't played along with the girls over at the ColourQ for a long time but when I sat down to make this card, I needed a little help with some colors and this week's color palette was perfect!!  I do not own any Rich RazzleBerry so I improvised and colored using my Prismas and OMS and I did find a button in my stash that matched it pretty well (it's showing up dark here).  Thanks so much for stopping by!
