Altenew October Inspiration Challenge

Dear Ones~
Another post tonight. I really enjoyed playing in my craft room today. This offering is for the Altenew October Inspiration Challenge.

Here is the inspiration:
And here is my card:
 I decided to stamp the 3-step leaf stamp from Altenew's A Beautiful Day on kraft card stock with white pigment ink, and then use colors for the details. I did the Rock and Roll technique with Delightful Dijon and Cherry Cobler for the detail image, and the outline was done with Cajun Craze. I really like the look. The stripe is a background stamp from Stampin' Up. 
I love it and use it a lot.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Cranberry Tart and Kraft Card Stock
PTI Rustic Cream Card Stock
Altenew A Beautiful Day Stamps
W Plus 9 Happy Birds Stamp
SU Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp
GKD White Pigment Ink
SU Inks In:
*Cherry Cobbler
*Delightful Dijon
*Cajun Craze

 So that's it for me tonight. Hope you had a lovely day. Tomorrow is Friday and the weekend will be upon us. Thanks for stopping by, your comments mean the world to me!
