Oh, Hello Friday!

Another week has flown by. We're wrapping up week 2 of Harvest. The combine sat at the shop for a better part of the day having a new tire put on. Seems like a simple task right? How about when your tires are taller than you are? I stood around and watched the guys work on the combine for a good 5 minutes before I decided it was just too darn hot for me (even though I was in shorts and a tank top and the guys were all in coveralls). I ran home and locked myself in my woman cave. I wanted to do something with a "wheat" color in it. This just popped into head. I've been wanting to combine these colors for a while. I think it worked out well. I created this card for Fab Friday's challenge #23 and will also double for A.R.T. Card Challenge #7 (Anything Goes).

Supplies Used: 
Paper ~ Wisteria Wonder, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Ink ~ Wisteria Wonder, Basic Gray, So Saffron, White StazOn 
Stamp Sets ~ Daydream Medallions, Oh Hello, Gorgeous Grunge, Chalk Talk
Other Supplies ~ Floral Frames framelits, 1 1/4" circle punch, Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Antique Brads, Brayer tool
Misc. Supplies (non-Stampin' Up!) ~ white linen fabric, tule 

*For the cute little linen flower, I cut a strip of white linen fabric, colored it with So Saffron ink and the Brayer tool and then folded layers onto the Antique Brad. 
*For the Oh, Hello banner, I started off with Whisper White paper, colored it with So Saffron ink and the Brayer tool.
