If you got here from fabulously talented Tosh's Blog you are in the right place.  


For my card I am using ODBD Randi's Song and Friendship stamp sets.   I combinded some Fancy Pants Hopscotch designer papers.   

I used three different patterns to stamp the framed leaf image using vintage cream ink.  I  heat embossed, cut out the image so just the leaf would be present.   I colored with coordinating copics to enhance designer paper hues.   


I lightly stamped the scripted image with ranger marmalade.  I then stamped the sentiment with a dark chocolate ink.   I added some ink distressed corrugated cardboard for added dimension. I ink distressed and paper distressed the edges, added some stitching, and finished with a button top seam binding bow and two gold pearls.    I am using this wonderful sketch from Deconstructed Sketch 72.   My card is for a very dear friend of mine.  We have known each other for over 20 years and have been there for each other in more ways than one.  I pray for her often and I appreciate her so much!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is the fabulously talented Connie's blog.

  29. Betty, Impressive seasonal and rich in layers. I like the sewing and the rugged layers. When I look out my north window I see the beautiful colors of the maple trees painting the Laurentian Mountains. Your card tells me the story. Fall is here and wooing winter once again. Blessings Carole
