Global Stamping Friends - Colour Challenge Blog Hop

Well we meet aging with this our 13th hop together and the projects just keep getting better - this months hop is a challenge and boy has it been a challenge for me as my favourite colours are Autumn (Fall) warm tones so although my table is covered in bits and bobs now of discarded for this project pieces - here is my greeting card. I will be getting back to those 'spare extra' bits later as some are just divine.
The Colours; Whisper White, Smokey Slate, Pool Party, Night of Navy.
Did you see the card I shared the day HERE it was the same technique and Dawns video is linked to that post with instructions.

So what do you think? I added the ribbon but gathered it as I went for a bit of extra texture. The sentiment is from Ribbon of Courage it is coloured with coordinating markers and I added some of the thin silver thread for another textural element.
Thank you for joining me today - please come back regularly - this week alone is a busy blog week with a wonderful new catalogue to share and Christmas just months away. Please pop over - or should I write hop over to visit Stephanie in the US to see what she came up with using this colour combo.
