CardMaker Blog Hop

Welcome to the CardMaker Blog Hop!  Today the theme is Graceful Leaves and we created cards celebrating the first day of autumn!  This is my favorite time of the year...the mornings are cooler and the leaves are beginning to change color creating their beautiful spectrum of fall colors.

For my card, I used the Penny Black Foliage Fancy stamp.  I stamped the leaves using Versafine Oynx Black onto an ivory piece of card stock and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Then I sponged liberally with Distress inks.  I added a sentiment using Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two.

Be sure to check out the inspiration from the rest of the team.  I know that I am looking forward to seeing the fall cards everyone created!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,
