Autumn...

I have to say that autumn is such a beautiful time of year. I love the colors of the leaves and the crispness in the air. It was like that here yesterday morning, so I decided it was time to make something fallish.
The stamps I used on this card are from JustRite Stampers Give Thanks Nested Frames set. Using my Clear Horizontal Stamper I stamped with Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The image was colored with Tombow Markers using a damp paint brush to blend.

The sentiment was cut with Spellbinders petite oval, then the edges were distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Ink .

The designer paper is from the new Basic Grey Pyrus paper pad. The cardstock is Prismatics Papaya Puree and Birchtone Dark .I used 5/8" Natural Twill for my bow. The button was threaded with Ivory Burlap String , and I added two leaf punches for a bit of added color and dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I have a couple more projects for you this week, so I will be back soon with something new.
