Something to Believe in...

I am on a Fall kick lately! If you can't tell, I am way past done with summer! I cling to the belief that Fall can't be too far off:) This card features a beautiful new set from SU, Just Believe. I used this card for my August club meeting, and used it for a Fall swap as well. The new color, Cajun Craze, is really growing on me! Kind of Really Rust meets Dusty Durango, it's the perfect fall color. It's simply paired here with a Basic Black base and layer, and sponging with More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze. I used these rusty colors to create a fall sunset. The flower is stamped with Jet Black StazOn. I love the deepness of this black! I also ran the Cajun Craze layer through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

This is such a simple card, and could easily be changed up using different colors. I want to try it with an Early Expresso base, Marina Mist background and sponging with Bashful Blue, Marina Mist and maybe Not Quite Navy. I am stuck on sponging lately, which makes it easy not to spend money on manicures:)

Hope you all like it!

Happy Stampin'!
