Congratulations card

Hello, everybody! I don't know how the weather is where you are, but even here in hot ol' Arizona, you can feel a change in the air the past couple of days. Now don't get me wrong, we don't have a "fall" season here so I can't say that autumn is nearing, but when I mowed the lawn yesterday, it wasn't ridiculously hot! YAY! Anyway, I just love the colors in this line from My Mind's Eye So Sophie "Graceful" collection. They are so rich and warm, and have a lovely autumnal feeling to them. I can pretend right???

Supplies: Bazzill Chiffon cardstock, Creative Imaginations Corrugated Paper (Kraft), My Mind's Eye So Sophie "Graceful" patterned papers, Marvy square punch, EK Success scallop punch, American Crafts stamp, Tsukineko ink (Rich Cocoa), Darice hemp cording, machine stitching.
Another view. Each square is attached with a pop dot for more dimension. And if you were wondering about punching the corrugated paper, it was pretty easy with this punch, but I think I would avoid a more intricate border pattern. The paper is pretty thick, so a bigger, simpler pattern works best.
Thanks for looking!

Oh love your card, very cute!
Yes, I finally got a blog going...kinda needed one to try out for a DT, which I didn't make...ah well. I had a really good time trying out! We'll have to get together when I'm back in AZ, currently in ID until Nov. Hope you're enjoying the nice warm weather, I'm freezing!
