Today I decided to step away from my Christmas cards for awhile and I decided to make a fall themed card using this basket harvest digi image from designed2delight.  I also made this card for the double delight and that challenge was to create a clean & simple card.

After printing the digi image I heat set it using my heat gun and then I began to color.  I wasn't quite sure which colors I wanted to go with, but in the end I think it turned out okay.  I really like that I ended up making the basket a ruby red color.

After coloring my image I cut it out using my circle nesties and then I layered it onto my scalloped ruby red card stock.  Next, I embossed the background of my card and then I began putting it all together.

My pumpkin pie card stock layer has faux stitching along the top and bottom portion and then I simply tied my certainly celery ribbon in the middle.

My sentiment is from SU's Give Thanks stamp set (I used my marker to color only the words I wanted tfomr that sentiment stamp) and then I punched it using my SU word window punch.

I used my scallop border punch on the tiny strip of pumpkin pie card stock at the bottom of my card.

And that's about it for today, thanks for stopping by and I hope you had a great day!

Stamps: Designed2Delight Harvest Pumkpin Digi Image, SU Give Thanks (for my sentiment)
Card Stock: White, Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, DP from Target's Dollar Spot
Ink: Black Marker to color part of the sentiment stamp
Supplies: Ribbon, Cuttlebug, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Pumpkin Harvest, Scallop Circle and Circle Nesties, SU Scallop Border Punch, SU Mat Pack, Paper Piercing Tool, Glue Dots, White Gel Pen
