So Blessed


This is the first day of Autumn! I hope you're not tired of my Autumn cards yet.  These colors make me happy, and so do the usual cooler temperatures.  But today we have highs almost in the 90's - what's up with that?  Hoping for a return to "normal" soon! 

I'm entering this into the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge,  to use fall colors and/or leaves.  The prize there is a gift certificate to Our Daily Bread designs....I don't have any of their stamps and would love to try them!  

 I used distress inks in autumn colors to color a sheet of glossy cardstock, and then overstamped the music background using water.  I immediately heat set that, and then stamped the wreath using Adirondack cranberry ink.  The sentiment was framed  and popped in the center and I added a raffia-like bow to finish. 

Supplies:  glossy white cardstock, Hero Arts Grenadine notecard, spiced marmalade and wild honey distress inks, Adirondack cranberry ink, Hero Arts CG222 Music Background, CG215 Wreath of Leaves, CL119 Happy Thanksgiving (sentiment), raffia bow
