Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop - Autumn Card

It is time for another Blog Hop with Papertrey Ink. This time Nichole wanted us to create using an Autumn theme. I don't know about you but I love making autumn cards ... these are my favorite colors!! I started out making some background paper using that amazing leaf stamp from the First Fruits set. I picked some great fall colors and then used distress inks around the edge. I sewed a piece of Summer Sunrise onto my designer paper with brown thread and distressed it as well. Then, I created the sentiment and added a satin knot. It's a rather simple card but I think the colors are rich and the distressing and sewing makes it "rustic". Now, I'm off to see what all the other hopping bloggers created!! I'm sure I'll be inspired!! Have a good hopping evening!! Donelda Supplies: Stamps - First Fruits, Borders & Corners {rectangles}, Paper Tray (Papertrey Ink); Ink - Spring Moss, Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!), Antique Linen, Walnut Stain (Ranger); Paper - Select White, Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), Kraft (Stampin' Up!); Other - sewing machine and brown thread, brown satin ribbon (Michaels), sponge applicator (Ranger), dimensionals.
