Fall Blessings

Today I'm sharing another card I made combining several of the Split Coast VSN weekend challenges.

The challenges were - to use apples, to use Red,  to use classroom supplies ( I used cork) and the ABC challenge- I used apples, basket, cork!

I stamped my image on the thin cork and colored it with Copics. I wasn't sure how the stamping would look on the cork or how the Copics would color on it -  but it worked out nicely I think!   I layered the cork to a black panel. I stamped the sentiment on my red card base and then embossed the card with Square Lattice by SU. To finish - I adhered the cork panel to the card and added 3 clear gems beside the sentiment.
My stamps are from Peace & Plenty by Waltzingmouse a wonderful stamp set for fall!

I'm also entering this in the Cas-ual Friday challenge -  fall fun

Our days are getting cool here in New England and we're seeing pumpkins at the farm stands!

I hope you can stop by on Thursday -  I'll have a really fun Template by Creations by AR to share with you!!
