Every month, I intend to play along with the Papertrey Blog Challenge, but rarely find the time. Now that I'm all settled in my new house (i.e NEW craft room!!) I have more space and time though, so I am hoping to start participating monthly.
Because this month's fell on a Saturday, I knew I had no excuse! This month's image is so pretty. I love the regal tones. Once the inspiration piece was posted, I brainstormed the elements and PTI colours that popped out.

Here's what my brainstorm list looked like:
For Colours- Smokey Shadow, Plum Pudding, Autumn Rose, Scarlet Jewel, Saffron Spice, Terracotta Tile, Gold, and Black.
For Themes- Laurel Leaves, Handwritten Script, Gems, Banner, Grape and Figs
I took that list and pulled out all the colours that I had written down and decided on my palette. Next I sought out stamps that felt like they fit the themes, at least somewhat.
I decided on Meadow Greens and Wet Paint III.
I stamped the leaves using Royal Velvet, Saffron Spice, Autumn Rose, and Scarlet Jewel onto white cardstock. Once that was completed, I slightly inked up the corresponding leaf stamps with gold ink and gently stamped over each image. I just wanted a touch of gold on each of the leaves.
I added a Royal Velvet frame and put the whole panel onto Saffron Spice.
The final touch was the sentiment. I die cut the "sending" image from Smokey Shadow card stock and embossed the "well wishes" greeting onto a vellum strip using gold embossing powder.
