I finally was able to get this posted today. The computer store was busy the last two days transferring the data from my old computer to my new one. So now I am ready to go. I really enjoyed this challenge. This card took me longer to do than normal but I did enjoy working on adding color to the detail of the stamped image. I also thought that the leaves were a perfect addition to the card. I used "Harvest Home" for this challenge. I always liked this set and for some reason, I just thought this set would be perfect for this card. I am in the holiday mode for some reason. For the last few weeks I have been stuck on making Autumn and Christmas cards. But I think this one is my favorite so far. The supplies that I used on this card were:

INK: Black Staz-On, Bermuda Bay
ACCESSORIES: Bleach, Blender Pen, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, 1/4" Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals
Although this was the simplest card I created for the technique classes, it took me the longest. I think it took me longer to do because I did not want it to be simple and boring. It took a while to come up with additions that were subtle but added interest. Tomorrow I will post a picture of a baby's room that became more interesting after Decor Elements were added. Enjoy your day!

Just a tip. If you are using bleach on your stamps to stamp, please make sure that you clean then right after use. That will insure that they stay in good shape. I was so excited to make this card because I could not wait to use this new design of designer paper. I really like the new designs that they have in the catalog this year. I can not wait to try out more of them. This afternoon I am going to do my most favorite thing of summer. I am going to my friend's house where she has prepared a lunch for a small group of us. (a couple of women that I used to work with) and after lunch we are going to stamp. We do this once a week in the summer. We have had this tradition for at least 5 years now. I love that time with my friend's. So go and enjoy your day, I know I will. You can check my website www.dereag.stampinup.net for the dates and times this month.

I like how this card turned out. It is a very masculine looking card. It would be good to use for birthdays, Father's Day, or anytime for the manly man in your household.
