Papertrey Ink September 2014 Blog Hop

Time again for the Papertrey Blog Hop! This is the only challenge to which I make a regular effort to participate, as it occurs only once a month and seeing what everyone does with PTI products always inspires me. Here is the inspirational photo offered for this challenge:
This is one of two cards I designed, using the inspirational colors, as well as the sweater theme in the photo:



Background Basics: Striped Sweater is stamped on Sweet Blush card stock, using Autumn Rose and Enchanted Evening ink. Enchanted Evening card stock was used for trim and the little flower "brooch" from Floral Fusion. Though not in the color swatch, Simply Chartreuse is used for the leaves.  The brad is covered with Copic marker in an Autumn Rose tone and embellished with glitter. The Sweater Die is from the Shape Up Series at PTI.
