I really debated on what colors to use on my card with the Sunday Stamps colors.  I finally decided on Soft Suede, Sahara Sand and Night of Navy.  I love the way these colors blended together.  My card base is Night of Navy.  I cut a rectangle stitched layer with Soft Suede.  I used a postage stamp die for the Sahara Sand.  The leaves are from a retired stamp set by Stampin Up!   Wonderfall  is still a favorite of mine.  I will never get rid of it.  I love the alphabet, plaid and polka dots on the leaves.  I added a twine bow and a button.  The sentiment is stamped in black.
