Autumn Critters


Hi everyone!  I'm back again to share another new release image from Clear Dollar Stamps.  I hope you aren't getting tired of these decorative leaves because I'm having lots of fun using them to embellish my autumn cards.  The cute owl highlighted on this card is from the Autumn Critters digital stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps.


My card base is Dark Brown layered with White Cardstock then Old Olive and Harvest Moon patterned paper stitched around the edges.  The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.  To embellish the card I added Harvest Decor Leaves finished with a button threaded with DMC White.

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