9/10 FRIDAY Thankful Mums & Pumpkins



It is so fun to use all the stamps in a set and see the different looks you can get. Isn't this an elegant looking card? For this one I am featuring this lovely sentiment from the set by stamping it onto the blue cs and cutting into a rectangle, then rounding just the two opposing corners. I added a blue piece cut/embossed with the center of the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis pendant which is popped up. The card front is the blue and I added the brown rectangle before embossing with the Cuttlebug Textile Texture then I added the beautiful satin ribbon bow and the Fleur de lis panel and sentiment which is adhered by running it through my Xyron. This is really quite a simple card, but I love the elegant look.

Thanks for stopping by! This is the last day of the blog hop, so be sure to visit these blogs for more inspiration!
