Summer Olive Pies

Goofy name huh?! The color challenge for today is to use Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Kiwi Kiss. I don't like Kiwi Kiss that much so I opted to use the alternate color Old Olive which I like much better!! My sketch is from Sunday's challenge on Card Positioning Systems. My first time participating in one of thier challenges!! Papertrey is sponsoring the challenge this week so I wanted to be sure to participate!! I was kind of stumped at first until I thought of my Text Boxed set. I just don't use this set enough!! I need to change that!! LOL!! I started out by stamping the main image in Pumpkin Pie and stamping on Summer Sun, cut the image out using my long rectangle Nestabilites and attaching to a piece of black cardstock cut out using my long scallop rectangle Nestabilites. I then took the small flowers, stamped them in Versamark randomly and used clear embossing powder. I wrapped a piece of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon around and tied in a knot. I stamped the dream in Pumpkin Pie on Summer Sun and cut out using a smaller long rectangle Nestability and attached to a piece of black cardstock also cut out using a smaller scallop long rectangle Nestability. The Old Olive layer was attached to a Pumpkin Pie layer, then a Summer Sun layer and the base card is Old Olive.
Thanks so much for looking!!
