Block Collage and Nature Notes

Yesterday, the sun was so bright and warm I just had to play with a sunshine colored palette. Add to the scenerio that my trees are starting to turn already in my forest while my garden is struggling to make a mighty comeback that looks as if it will turn September into more of a summer scene than an autumn one.

At Technique Junkies, the weekly Try That Technique Challenge is asking us to use an old favorite of mine called Block Collage. It's a simple and quick way to make an impactful one-layer card! This is what I came up with:

Stamps: woman, silhouette flower, corner flourish and vines
from Nature Notes and rose and cosmos blossom from Floriculture
(Rogue Redhead Designs)

I have also entered this card in the following charming challenges:

Lawnscaping Challenge - Make Your Own Designer Paper with Stamps

Art Impressions - There's Only One Layer

There's not too much summer left now! Despite the September 21st date for Fall, I always count it from when my daughter goes back to school and she's back in class this week!
