Bloggers Challenge: Ruby Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard

This is a color combination I often turn to during the fall months. It was hard for me to think of using this color combo now, but I jumped right in and combined it with a sketch challenge from All that Scraps. I also made this for a swap I'm doing called "dusting off your sets" using sets we rarely use or haven't used at all.

Stamps: Bodacious Bouquet

Inks: above
Accessories: Earth Elements brads, Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder, Chocolate Grosgrain, sponged more mustard around flower
