Color challenge day with Riley and SNSS

Today's colors for the SCS challenge are vanilla, really rust and going gray. With Thanksgiving coming in only a couple days I thought it might be nice to make a couple last cards for the holiday. For the first card I had some basic grey dp that fit perfectly for this challenge so here it is:

I stamped the scripture on shimmer white paper in rust ink and sponged grey around the outside. I punched 2 borders out of black paper and attached them to the top and bottom of the verse. Here is a closeup:

stamps- Sweet N Sassy Stamps Thanksgiving scripture
CS- going grey, black, shimmer white, rust, basic grey ambrosia dp
accessories- Fiskars sunburst border punch, shimmer brads, pearls, satin ribbon

This great set is just one of the many stamp sets that are on sale at Sweet N Sassy stamps for 15% off. In addition you will receive free stamps with a $50 purchase in addition to the free shipping with $50 too. If you decided to take advantage of the sale just be sure to mention that Janette sent you in the comments section of your order and let me know and I will personally send you a card and a little something as an extra thank you.

I do have another card to show you. This card is a triple challenge card- I used the mojo 62 sketch for the layout, the color challenge, and the hanna stamps weekly challenge which was to create a scene.

I colored Riley with copics and I created sky and grass with chalks. I stamped the sentiment and sponged rust around it and ran my black ink pad along the edges. I punched out 2 strips and adhered them to the top and bottom according to the sketch.

stamps- Hanna Stamps everyday sentiments, turkey Riley
CS- black, rust, vanilla, grey, fall flowers dp
accessories- MS zig zag punch, copics, square punch, grey grosgrain, stampin pastels
