Autumn Blessings Thank You Card

Hello Friends! Happy Monday to you! I felt like coloring today and I wanted to share the card I created. I used a beautiful stamp set from Flourishes, called Autumn Blessings.

Isn't that a GORGEOUS stamp?! That rustic wheelbarrow is laden with gourds! I just love it! I stamped the image onto my favorite white card stock, using brown ink. Then, I colored it with Copic markers. I sponged around the edges and added lots of sparkle! I used a 'leaves' texture plate on the brown card stock for added interest.

I've been attending Stamping School this past month and that is where I got the layout for this card. Take a look at how it opens.

Pretty nifty, right? I lined the left side with patterned paper, to hide the ribbon works; adhesives and such. I like trying different folds and this one is SUPER easy, so I will definitely be using it again.

That's all I have for today. Thank you so much for visiting me. I appreciate it!
