Another Color Challenge!

For this week's color challenge on Splitcoast, I made this card. The challenge was to use Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red and Soft Sky. Any neutrals are allowed (thank goodness!). The polka dot patterned paper is in the Summer Picnic pack and technically is Purely Pomegranate- but the dots are so small who could tell it's not ruby red?? (Put your hands down!) This stamp set, Wonderful You, is new to me which is why it's what I've used the last two days.

I embossed the leaf image in black and it turned out so sharp with the contrast- I really like it. The photo corners are popped up a bit for some dimension, as is the embossed sentiment which is on the Word Window punch trimmed to fit the small oval punch. I wanted to do something a tiny bit different with the Pumpkin mat so it is in three sections (you may not have noticed). A bit more work to do this, but not much. Mine is very subtle, but you can achieve a neat look doing this.

One more note, this card is a 6x6 folded in half. Anyway, thanks for stopping by!
