Blessings

Good Monday All!

This week the challenge at The Kraft Journal is "Blessings". I had a sentiment from WPlus9 Stamps that was used as my starting point for my card this week.



I started with a card base of Buff Ivory Cardstock onto which I layered a brown piece of patterned paper where next I added layers of fall inspired patterned papers to complete the foundation. 


I took a length of Bias Tape and wrapped it around the card front and tied in a bow which I embellished with a fall leaf button. Using Buff Ivory Cardstock, I made four different die-cuts, one for the sentiment, one the postage square, then the pumpkin, and leaf. I inked the edges with Vintage Photo. 

Before assembling, I took Brown Kraft Baker's Twine and added to the postage square tying off in a double bow. My last bit of embellishing was adding a paper rose to the center of the pumpkin. 

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Blessings creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

 
I am adding to join in also at The Paper Players - Fall Thank You, Can You Case It:Fall Edition.
