*Use It Tuesday #13*

I love that the Use it Tuesday challenges are only twice a month instead of weekly....  as a player I felt so much less pressure to get a card created and posted to my blog than playing along with weekly challenges.

Not to mention that the challenges are forcing me to dig in to my stash to find things I haven't played with in a while.

For challenge #13, we are challenging you to dig in to your stash to create something inspired by "Indian Summer".  Indian Summer is when you have warm summer-like days after a killing frost in the fall....  and to me, Indian Summer screams rusts, and deep yellows and browns.....  which is what you'll see used in my card.  I found a piece of patterned paper deep in my stash that had only been cut in to once.... and I used a stamp set that I had to have and then barely used....
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White; Stampin' Up! Cajun Craze, Kraft
*Images: PTI Beautiful Blooms; There She Goes Flowers of Happiness
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Riding Hood Red, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
*Tools: Stampin' Up! circle punches
*Challenges:  Use It Tuesday#13



Please take a few minutes to go see what the other members of the UseItTuesday Design Team have created (their links are in my left sidebar) and then get busy in your crafty space to create your own card inspired by Indian Summer using items from your stash!
