Pretty Palette #36

Happy Sunday!  It's time for another Pretty Palette challenge!  These colors (very fall-ish) were taken from a fabric on a chair that was featured in a JoAnn's ad a while back. 

Here's a shot of the fabric from the chair.  It looked fabulous on the chair!

So here is my interpretation of the colors.  I used the Basic Grey paper pack Max and Whiskers and the Up in the Air cut file from My Time Made Easy.  I've been wanting to use this cut file for a while.  It makes a very cute shape card for a birthday or congratulations for a promotion or something like that.

Here's the card open with the sentiment inside.  The "soar" sentiment is from On Display 1 stamp set and the "Happy Birthday" is from So Sentimental stamp set

I took a picture of what my Cricut mat looked like after I cut out the cut file.  (I did change my base colors up a bit after I took this picture because I wasn't happy with the mustard base, so I changed it to cajun craze.)  Great way to use up scraps too!  You can see how easy it is to cut and assemble this card when you have the right tools!

I'm also entering this in the Moxie Fab's Trigger Tuesday: Fall is in the Bag challenge. The colors are the same as the inspiration photo! Score for me!

You can see more inspiration using these colors over on the MTME blog. I've listed the girls' blogs below, too. Hope to see you creating something fabulous over there! Thanks for stopping by!

Lisa, I'm drooling over this. Truly fabulous! And thanks for the visual. I still consider myself a novice at using the SCAL program so this helped me!

Happy Sunday!

Why isn't. This up on the blog :-) it's truly fantastic !!!! Love every detail wow!!!

Lisa, I LOVE how this turned out! Do you have SCAL or a gypsy or something to be able to lay all of it out like you showed? I cannot imagine doing that!
I just got my cricut in the summer, own one cartridge that I am LOVING! Just whipped up a bunch of tags today with it. All they need now is a wee bit of trimming to add detail!
