Incredibly Grateful

Today is the first official day of Autumn and a great time to pull out the watercolors to create a fall card.  I chose this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp to make a pretty background of fall leaves.   I used my MISTI to make a leafy border around the sentiment from the set.   Each leaf and the sentiment was inked with Hero Arts "Artprint Brown" and embossed with clear embossing powder.   The fun part was adding the fall colors with a variety of watercolors in the background and on the leaves.   To finish it off with a bit of shimmer I added a spray of Heidi Swapp "Color Shine Gold."

I am entering this card in two challenges.  The current challenge with the SSS Flickr Group HERE , and also Paru's Card Making Challenges "Focus on the Words"

Thank you for checking out my blog.   Your comments, questions and suggestions are always welcome.
