Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop


Blog-hop-logo
Our quiet Thanksgiving at home gave me the chance to make my card for today's PTI Blog Hop.  I love this month's inspiration & chose to use the colors, leaves & berries. 
The die cut Mix & Mat: Flourishes was painted in a coppery, gold metallic watercolor--so beautiful in person.  I used several Distress Inks on watercolor paper for the die cut leaves from Harvest Berries & berries from Spruce & Sprigs.  I didn't use foam tape, but did leave the ends of the berries & some leaves unglued for a little dimension.  The sentiment from Lovely Layers was brown heat embossed & the panel was attached to a Vintage Cream card.  I'm grateful every day for my blogging friends, so this card will be sent long before next Thanksgiving.
I'm also entering CAS-ual Fridays, CCCB, Retro Rubber (I've had the sentiment set 5 years) & Die Cut Divas.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
