So Thankful for You - (CTD413)

Hi there!  It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!
Before I get to my card, I'd like to welcome our Color Throwdown Guest Designer for this month, Erin Lee Schreiner.
I'm in total Fall mode right now so when I saw the colors for this week's CTD Challenge I knew I wanted to bust out the new Papertrey Ink Paper Clippings: Thankful for You die and stamps.  So I started out by using a piece of watercolor paper and some spiced marmalade and ripe persimmon distress inks and watercolored my background.  Next I used the Thankful for You Paper Clippings die and die cut two of them.  The first Thankful for You I stamped using enchanted evening ink for the lettering, then used canyon clay & terra-cotta tile for the leaves and berries.  And finally I used some kraft & close to cocoa ink for the wheat.  On my second die cut piece I stamped an extra wheat and an extra leaf and berry piece and added them to my original die cut & stamped piece, gluing the whole thing down onto my watercolored panel.  I adhered a strip of enchanted evening cardstock along the left side of my card front and then adhered my watercolor paper piece.  As a final touch I glued on some orange iridescent sequins.
For more inspiration, check out the design teams' blog links below OR you can go to the Color Throwdown blog for details on how to play along and you can see all the sample entries in one location.
