Feeling Like Fall

Good morning all!

 Sorry it's been a little quite round here on the old blog front. I suppose summer + back to school frenzy will do that to you.

 Anyway, I have a card that I wanted to share with you today that I had originally created for a Paper Crafts call for submission for their feature on Natural Elements which is appearing right now in the September/October issue.

 The cards featured in the magazine are just gorgeous! I don't know about you, but when I start thinking of twine, denim, burlap, and warm wood, my mind goes directly to fall. With that said, here was my take on this challenge:

I stamped the ginko leaves from Papertrey Ink's Harvest Berries set on a panel of balsa wood.  I used pigment ink for the leaves and was very pleased that the stamped images retained their detail. The sentiment was stamped on the Mat Stack 1 shape and I trimmed the bottom to be flush with the bottom of the panel.  I also debossed the mat stack panel with a woodgrain embossing plate before adhereing. A few pearls finished off the card. 

Well that's it for me today.  Thank you so much for stopping by!
