Fab Friday Color Challenge: Grateful Sympathy Greetings

Welcome back to the middle of the week!  I have to tell you, with the cooler weather I'm really embracing the fall feelings and loving all the signs of fall.  I decided to embrace fall, with a twist for this weeks Fab Friday Color Challenge.  I started by making this card a Thanksgiving card and pulled out my current fall favorite Truly Grateful stamp set to stamp the wood grain chevron background image and the acorn that I cut out with Paper Snips.  But since I've made a few Thanksgiving cards already I decided to change things up and make this a sympathy card and used the Best of Greetings stamp set for the perfect greeting.  Of course I couldn't not use the awesome Gorgeous Grunge stamp set (have I made you see how amazing this set is with all my recent projects???) to create the Tangerine Tango Lines and Chocolate Chip splotches.

I added a piece of Sweater Weather DSP (this paper has such a unique color combination, one I wouldn't have considered but it really works well) that was matted on Crushed Curry cardstock that was sponged with Chocolate Chip ink, as well as a strip of burlap ribbon that I trimmed off the edges and frayed it.  The greeting is punched out with the Large Oval Punch and matted with a piece punched with the Decorative Label Punch.
I really like how this card turned out and could see this easily being made into a Thanksgiving, birthday, thank you, just about any type of card you need, so fabulous. 
Hope you enjoy and happy stamping!
