Wishing you

Hello!! Hope you all are having a fantastic day! August is coming to an end and with it, the season changes, which I really love! Fall is my favorite season, so I decided to create a Fall card using "Leaf Silhouettes" set.
This card is super easy!! I stamped 3 of the leaves on White cardstock in Wild Honey Distress Ink, cut them out and then ink all edges with Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo Distress Ink, love the result!
I added stitches all around the card, die-cut 3 scallop edges borders from Patterned paper. Added them to card front, as well as small gold nail heads and a bow with a big gold pearl brad.
I stamped the sentiment on Ivory Cardstock, die-cut it using one of the Decorative Plaque dies. Added to card with foam tape, added the leaves and you are done :)
