Lamp Unto My Feet

Hello! Shirley, posting today.  This week's challenge called for a card with Fall colors. I must say I love the warm colors associated with Fall. In fact, Fall is my favorite season of the year.

God paints the most beautiful colors in our trees this time of the year. The leaves seem to be turning a little earlier this year than normal. I think that is because we have had quite a bit of rain. Actually it has rained for the last three days and it looks like there will be two more rainy days to follow.

Okay, let's get I started on the card. I used a brown card base. I cut the second layer for my card from the Graphic 45 12 days of Christmas 6 X 6 pad.  I used white card stock to make the third layer. I sponged distress ink around all three layers of my card.

I chose to use the Inky Antics Shining Lantern stamps to stamp the image and sentiment on my card.  I colored the image with three markers, to achieve the color I wanted for the lamp. I punched corners from brown card stock, and from the 12 days of Christmas paper pad, to adhere to the corners of my card. I added Snowflake Pearls.

I picked some ribbon in my stash with the same fall colors I used on my card. I adhered the ribbon across the end of the card. I used my Bow Easy to tie the pretty bow.

Where ever you are today, I hope you are having a wonderful day!
