Season of Thanks

Saturday, October 22, 2016

 With a day of rain and a 40 degree drop in temps, Fall has officially arrived (took it's time!)  The leaves in our area have really turned and are falling -- everywhere ;)

 

For my card, I started with a piece of watercolor paper and Color Bursts.  After spritzing, I added some additional ink and slightly blended the colors.  So fun -- I never know what exactly I'll end up with, but here it is!  Then I used these cut/emboss leaf dies and layered them on gold cardstock adding the "thanks" word die (PTI) and a few gold sequins.
 

 Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
