My Sheri Crafts Challenge #21: Labor Day

My Sheri Crafts' weekly challenge for Labor Day made me think of its significance here in the desert SW -- saying bye-bye to triple-digit temps, welcoming back our fabulous fall weather and enjoying the great outdoors again. For my tribute I stamped Papertrey Ink's vase of sunflowers and the Autumn Abundance sentiment. Needing more practice using my air compressor, I left my stamped image in the Nestie circle and added Copic Y21 Buttercup Yellow to the BG. I'm improving, but quite sure Debbie Olson has nothing to fear from me just yet -- LOL! I love trying new concepts/tools and paper crafting certainly provides abundant learning opportunities! I decided to cut a window in my card front & mount my focal image inside. Below is the inside photo.

Paper: PTI's Vintage Cream,Plum Pudding, Lavender Moon CS & Friends 'Til the End DP
Stamps: PTI's Autumn Abundance
Ink: Memento's Rich Cocoa
Embellishments: Bazzill Basics Ribbon
Tools: Spellbinders' Wizard, Circle /Inverted Scalloped Circle and Ribbon Tag dies; Various Copic Markers; Central Pneumatic Air Compressor
