Perfectly Preserved Sunday

I thought this Perfectly Preserved Sunday card would be great for today’s challenges!! I have been DYING to use this set that I got from the NEW HOLIDAY CATALOG!! I love the little jar and all the adorable things you can put inside it.  There are ALL kinds of little accents and embellishments for the jar.  SOOOO cute, and just perfect for this coming holiday season!

 I thought some apples and cherries would be great for this card, with the colors I used which really made me think of fall.  I used a few different embossing folders to create texture to my card front.  Then I decided to run my WHITE CRAFT INK PAD over the raised patterns to give some dimension to the textures as well.

I of course relied on some inspiration for today’s project… I got the color inspiration from ColourQ and the sketch from Try Stampin’ on Tue.  I was really challenged with the color selection, this was NOT a combo that I would have come up with on my own… Bravo Burgundy, Calypso Coral, Summer Starfruit, So Saffron.
Heres what I used for this card:
