Now, for my design team project.  The Theme is Fall/Autumn and I've created an A2 sized card using the Layered Leaf Prints Stamp Set from Gina K. Designs.

This stamp set is a layering set and I've used the final leaf layer to stamp leaves along the edge using Catherine Pooler Inks.  I chose colors I felt best represented Autumn but also added vivid color to my design.  The card base is 110 lb. Neenah Kraft Card.

I stamped the sentiment, from the same stamp set, using Icing on the Cake Catherine Pooler brown ink as I didn't want a deep black sentiment on the card.  To finish off, I wrapped Baker's Twine and adhered gold gems from Kat Scrappiness for bling.

I invite you to join us and play along.  We're excited for this new challenge and we're confident you're going to love it too!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
