Fall Blessings

Welcome to the first day of Fall! I really wanted to create a fall type card today...not sure I really accomplished my mission but this is what I created. The paper is from K&Company Tim Coffey Fall Paper Pack. This is an awesome pack of paper. The bottom edge of the card was scalloped with one of my Fiskars punches. I altered the orignal paper a little by adding a brown acorn stamp and although you really cannot see it, I also stamped some gold leaves on the paper. The Gold ink used is from Stampabilites and the brown ink is Stampin Up Chocloate Chip. The Blessed embossed sentiment was created by embossing a metal plate made by Pressed Petals. The package came with 3 metal tags..Love, Cherish, and Blessed. I put the Blessed tag through the Cuttlebug and then used a brayer to roll the gold ink over the embossing. I didn't want the "look" to be perfect as the background of the paper is actually crackled so I was pleased with the way it turned out. Thanks so much for visiting me today!

I like the "grungy" look - so really like how this turned out. You will have to tell / show me what a brayer is. Oh, since I won't have any "play time" anytime soon, I have your stuff all ready for you.
