With Thanks

Happy Sunday!!! Today I've got a card using the new Flourishes set Seasonal Wreaths. I love seasonal stuff so this caught my eye right away. I'm using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #39, too. This was another fun sketch from Mercy...another one I'll be going back to again and again, I'm sure.

I stamped the sunflower wreath image on Ivory Pure Luxury 80 lb paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I cut/embossed it with a Nestabilities Classic Circle die and matted it with a scalloped circle. Patterned paper is from the Earth Love Mini Deck by Cosmo Cricket and card stock is Soft Suede, Really Rust, and So Saffron. I distressed the edges of card stock with Old Photo Distress Ink and with a sanding block before stitching around the base card and the second element. The buttons are from PTI and tied on with Pearl cotton. The sentiment is from the same set, stamped in the same way as the main image and cut/embossed with a Spellbinders tag die. It was also ink distressed before being attached to the bow with a Making Memories Vintage Findings pin. Another fall card added to my stash!

Thanks for stopping by today!
