Blessed

I used the beautiful new Simon Says Stamp Floral Bundle die from the new STAMPtember® release, to make a Fall flavored card...
 Yes, I am really loving Fall and Fall colored cards right now!  I took this die out of it's envelope, and tried SO many ways to show off this Floral Bundle...yellow flowers, blue flowers(missing you), orange flowers...THOUGHT of pink flowers...wasn't feeling pink.  I kept taking the colors out of the petals, and refilling with different colors, but nothing felt right.  THEN, I put a rainbow behind the layered die cut , metallic paper, patterned paper....STILL nothing felt right.  THEN, I got out my beloved paint chips!  I used a variety of yellow, orange and red paint chips, and got to cutting.  Now mind you, paint chips are not very big, so I had to layer up horizontally, rather than across vertically.  I will say, the variety of colors became rather overwhelming, the more strips I cut, the more confused I got as to the variation of shades.  SO...what you see is a first and only attempt(it probably should have been longer lengthwise, except I was done looking at colors!).  BUT...I do love the look of the Fall colors!! I chose a sentiment stamp/die combo from the CZ Design stamp/die set, 30 Days of Thankful 2018.  Here's a close up...
I am one blessed person...how 'bout you?!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
