Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!


It is the 25th of the month and I am ready for my 2nd blog hop with PTI! This months theme was any project inspired by any aspect of fall. I chose to make a card. The paper is PTI kraft and ripe avocado. I sewed the ripe avocado to the craft. The ribbon is just some I had laying around. The leaf is from a cuttlebug die and emboss combo. I inked the leaf to give it the different colors of fall. Last but not least the I used a stamp from Fancy Flourishes and embossed it with Queens Gold by Ranger. This card was super simple to make and I think it turned out great! (Although it looks better in the flesh, I need to learn how to take better photos) Thanks for looking!

I love your stitching and your leaf is gorgeous too!
Dunno if it helps but I use www.picnik.com to edit my pics - they'd look awful without it!
