Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge

Hi! Today is Papertrey's Blog Hop. The inspiration photo is below.



I picked up on the theme of the autumn leaves for my card.


I stamped the sentiment on Kraft cardstock and then ran it through my Big Shot with the Linen Impression plate.



I watercolored orange, yellow, red and green onto watercolor paper and then die cut the leaves. I stamped the leaf veins in Classic Kraft and then spritzed with Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine.  You can see the sparkly shine in the photo above.

I attached the leaves with a single Glue Dot so that they would keep the slight curl and loose look. Next came the twine and a few sequins to finish it off.

I think this card will go to my SIL whose birthday is coming up in October. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have fun at the hop!
