Fall Thanks So Much



Good Saturday Morning Peeps!!!

The card I am sharing with you today is made with Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge.

I am definitely into the fall/Halloween mode! I just love this time of the year! My card is made with the Autumn Days Stamp Set. It is a set I got back in June when we could pre-order from the catalog. I have used it once maybe! So it need to see some ink!!!

The base of the card is Soft Suede, followed by always artichoke and then three strips of the Autumn Traditions DS paper. I used a little bit of some always artichoke 1/4" grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment comes from the Trendy Trees Set and is stamped onto some scrap white with soft suede ink and punched out with the word window punch. That is then layered onto the always artichoke piece that wa punched with the Modern label punch.

I stamped the main image panel with the berries inked with really rust and then used my always artichoke marker to color in the stems. The pheasant is stamped onto some scrap white with soft suede ink and cut out and mounted to the main image with some dimensionals. I cut the circle and scallop with my cuttlebug and nestie dies. I, of course, pierced the scallop circle.

I finally cut out a couple of leaves from the DS paper and added them just under the edge of the main panel. I then added a few gold sticky rhinestones to the corners and to the sentiment piece.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by, I am off to the Farmers Market!

HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
