Autumn Harvest

Hi everyone!  I'm back playing along with the progressive challenge at Delightful Inspiration again today. This week's image is the Autumn Harvest digital stamp by Designed2Delight. I love the beauty of fall colors and new I wanted to create a project using this image as soon as I saw it!

My card base is More Mustard layered with white cardstock then patterned paper stitched around the edges. My husband says my cards are all square of late so I rounded all the corners on this one. The shadow layer is Kiwi Kiss finished on both sides using the Deckled Edge Scissors. I wrapped DMC white around the card base and taped the ends down on the back side.

The image was printed on white cardstock and colored in using copic markers. Instead of paper piercing I stitched around the edges then layered the image on More Mustard. The leaves I picked up in the bargain bin at the local stamp store last weekend while shopping. I added a yellow button threaded with DMC White at the base of the leaves. To further embellish the card I added a Sunflower Dew Drop in each corner.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
