Autumn Blessings




Since it is fall weather here, I figured I'd get into the mood with this card. I'm just learning my oranges, so this was a bit of a challenge for me, but I enjoyed the learning "curve" :) I used a Karen Doodles image and followed the sketch at Clearly iStamp.

RECIPE: Karen Doodles-image; Autumn leaves, Basic Gray, PaperLoft patterned papers, bazzill cardstock, Sizzix dies, HeroArts flowers, Cuttlebug embossing, pearls and ribbon from LSS.
