Blessed

My part time schedule gives me 7-10 days off in a row, so we took off for one last camping trip. This time we went to our favorite spot in Central Oregon.  It's completely different scenery than our part of the state & we always enjoy our time there. This is the view from the back of our campsite. Actually we could see a string of mountain peaks--my absolute favorite view in the world, but I'm probably prejudiced, haha!  Back to being behind in blog reading & card making--I'll catch up with you soon.  Did get my card made last night for the PTI Create Along With Us Challenge.  I pinned quite a few of the DT new release creations including this one by Amy.
Created By Amy Sheffer
I used her layout for my Fall card with PTI stamps & dies Autumn Adornments & Counting My Blessings.  I colored the stamps with Distress Markers wild honey, spiced marmalade, fired brick, peeled paint & vintage photo.
I spritzed lightly before stamping on watercolor paper & added some splatters.  I also over-stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz.  The border punch which also embosses is by EK Success & the printed paper is from my favorite DCWV Harvest House paper pad. Fortunately I had Copics to color the pearls.  The panel is mounted with foam tape to a kraft card.  I'm also entering the House of Cards challenge & playing just for fun at Pixies Snippets Playground.  I so appreciate your sweet comments--thank you for the support! Edited to add: I used markers to color my stamps so will enter at Virginia's View.

  21. What a stunning view you had. That is just beautiful and how wonderful you got to see that every day you were there. Also, that is the best part time job to have. Getting that much time off at a time is terrific. The card is stunning as well. I love the leaves, acorns and berries on that spray and the lovely bottom border.
