Autumn is here!

Autumn...the crisp leaves crunching beneath my shoes, the Vinca blossoms fade but the gorgeous mums are in full bloom! October brings many birthdays in my group of fabulous girlfriends. This card was created using Tim Holtz's Distress Pads (Vintage Photo, Scattered Straw, Fired Brick and Peeled Paint); Stampers Anonymous stamp. Spritz with water and imprint onto Hahnemühle watercolor paper then heat set the pools of color. Swarovski crystal dots the center of the D. These fabulous crystals...not plastic but genuine Swarovski crystals...will be available in a pleasing palette in the store shortly. Card layout is based on a Valerie Stangle design. I love Val's work!! You can view her fabulous creations here.
