Autumn Beauty Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

First and foremost, I want to take time to remember those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Thank you to all of those who serve our country in the armed forces---your sacrifices are greatly appreciated.

Tonight, Theresa is hosting a blog hop with her newest set--Autumn Beauty! She has also designed a beautiful digital paper pack called All About Autumn that is available for purchase as well. Be sure to leave a comment on Theresa's blog for a chance to win this stamp set!

Here is my card:


I think I used all the other images in this set so I wanted to focus on the sunflower tonight. I stamped it on white Pure Luxury cardstock and colored it with Copics. I added a bit of gold stickles to the center.
I stamped the fun leaf swirls in the corner of the designer paper and then layered the image on top. The ribbon on the side of the image is from Gina K Designs too.
Materials used: Stamps-Autumn Beauty (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; Copic markers; Frayed burlap distress ink (Ranger); stickles (Ranger); Autumn cardstock paper (Recollections); hemp; corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); ribbon (Gina K Designs).
Theresa has asked several guest designers to join in on the blog hop tonight:
