Scattered Thanks and CCC14

Fall is officially here and I find myself drawn to earthy colors this time of the year!l
Today's card for the Creative Challenge Club # 14 is a color challenge and pretty open ended if you ask me!

Pick from a list of colors, use any combo you want or all!
I managed to slip ALL of the colors in my card!

I started off with a base of Kraft Card stock cut at 8.5" by 5.5" and scored at 4.25".
I layered Cajan Craze (bottom layer) with Old Olive on top and then Whisper White as my very top layer. I stamped the "thanks" thank from Seasonally Scattered by Stampin' Up! (LOVE IT!) twice. The first stamp is on the base layer of Whisper White and then on scrap paper I stamped it again and cropped around just the "thanks". Flagged each end in Old Olive and popped it all up on Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added an Antique Brad accent to the bottom left. Behind all of that I wrapped Old Olive Bakers Twine 3 times before popping it all up on Stampin' Dimensionals.

And now for the inside of my card!

I stamped one of the feathers from Four Feathers in Early Expresso and then embossed the greeting in Crushed Curry. (I know, I know! Hello Honey is the yellow in the challenge but I decided to break the rules since it doesn't come in embossing powder and my card just. really. needed. it.) (smile)

I even fit the pool party into the design of the card!
Where you ask?
On the back! But yes, I forgot to take a picture.
So Sorry!
The back of the card says "made with love" from Kind and Cozy set. Perfect for a back of a card!

Here's this weeks banner:
