Harvest BlessingsHarvest Blessings
At 40% off during the month of October, Harvest Blessings is one splendid deal!
For my card, I used the Harvest Blessings set.  I stamped the leaves in Versamark onto watercolor paper and embossed them with white embossing powder.  Then I used Distress Stains in Fired Brick, Wild Honey, and Peeled Paint and spritzed it with pearlized water.  It doesn't show up really well in the photo, but the background is all shimmery.  As a finishing touch, I added a few rhinestones next to the sentiment and rounded the bottom corners.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Hopping!
