A gift from Nat

Awhile back I was a random winner in a Hero Arts scramble contest.  We have these periodically at the HA flickr group, and the idea is to be challenged by our hostess, come up with a design using the challenge criteria, make a card, photograph it, and post it to our flickr group, all in 90 minutes!  Nat was our hostess, and she sent me this wonderful silhouette stamp called "In the Garden" as part of my prize from her.  I thought it would be pretty inked in autumnal tones, so here is a card that I made for the monthly Hero Arts contest: Everything Autumn:


supplies: cream parchment, orange, and rust card stocks, Hero Arts K5353 In the Garden, inked in Inkadinkado Rainbow Harvest ink, CL361 Season of Giving (sentiment and pumpkins), Anita's Teddy Bear ink


Thank you, Nat, I love this stamp!

The next scramble is scheduled for Sept. 17, hosted by Latrice, if you'd like to join us next time.  Here's the schedule; scroll all the way down to the bottom for the latest.  And here's the schedule from October into the New Year.
