A New Design Team!

About a month ago I was graciously asked by Mynnette if I would like to be a design team member for her challenge blog, Technique Time Tuesday. I was thrilled and accepted!  The challenge run monthly and today is my first day participating as a design team member!  The challenge this month is Blurred Vision Stamping and you can see Mynnette's wonderful video on the Technique Time Tuesday blog. Here is what I came up with for this month's challenge:
For some reason I am always in the mindset that I can only use leaves in the fall, but we have leaves in the summer too, so why not?!  I decided to use some of our new colors for a soft, summery feel.  I was anxious to try out the new stretchy trim ribbon too. It is just GORGEOUS!  I guess the formal name is Ruffle Stretch Ribbon. lol I will definitely be putting more colors of this on my future orders. It is so fun to work with!

Stamp Sets: Gently Falling, Sassy Salutations
Cardstock: Baked Brown Sugar, Bermuda Bay, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar, Bermuda Bay, Crisp Cantaloupe
Tools: Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Ovals and Circles Framelits, Distress Tool, Aqua Painter, Sponge
Accessories: Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffle Stretch Ribbon
