September Paper Trails Blog Hop - Sonoma

Welcome to the Paper Trails Blog Hop for September!

You should have arrived from Terri's blog, but this is a circular hop, so it doesn't really matter where you begin.  ;)

This month we are featuring a beautiful paper pack called Sonoma.

I have to say that Sonoma is one of the paper packs that jumped off the Idea Book page when I first saw it.  It just seems so versatile to me.

For my 6x6 card, I decided to put away the purples and greens and work with the browns in the pack to make it more monochromatic. 

I added a punch of color by layering the Tulip velvet ribbon over top of the Dark Chocolate Striped grosgrain.

The image of the little girl from the Childhood Portrait stamp set was stamped in Cocoa ink and then clear embossed.

The words are from a new stamp set called Art Philosophy Seasons, which is one of 3 stamp sets included in the new Cricut Art Philosopy Collection.
{In case you haven't already heard, CTMH has a Cricut Cartridge!!!}

Check out that beautiful Rhinestone Designer Brad!

Thank you for visiting me today.
Please continue on the Paper Trail Blog Hop by visiting Mary's blog.

Happy creating!  :)
