September Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

I'm excited to be playing along with the September Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.   Nicole gave us this lovely image for inspiration.
Last month I purchased the Beautiful Berries - Autumn and the coordinating dies and was anxious to ink them up so here is my inspired card.
I used a piece of Kraft Core Coredinations paper for the base panel and I sanded it a bit to reveal the kraft beneath the color.  I layered the black panel to a white card base so the white shows through the dots.  The circles frame was die cut using one of the dies in the Mix and Mat Flourishes Die Set.  I white embossed the sentiment.  After stamping the die cut bittersweet pieces, I sponged all the edges with Ranger Distress Frayed Burlap Ink and layered them over the die cut frame with foam dots.  I added 3 gold enamel dots.

Now I'm off to check out everyone's inspired cards -  are you hopping too?  You'll find lots of inspiration at the PTI blog hop here.  You have until midnight to link up.
