Second Friday Post...



A quick card before heading out the door for errands...This is for the first September Viva la Verve sketch - a tall layout by the talented diva, Amber! I went with some retired DP (Autumn Splendor) by SU with a base of Rustic Cream CS by PTI. I die cut multiple maple leaves and stamped a quick sentiment flag (love that Lil' Inker Designs set!) and added a button with chocolate baker's twine. The edges were distressed and sponged with Antique Linen distress ink. This is also for the CCEE Stampers challenge to create a fall card using a die. TGIF and I happen to be off today as well!

STAMPS: Happy Fall (Verve), Sentiment Flags (Lil' Inker Designs).
