Autumn

 Hi everyone, my magazine subscription came with the most beautiful stamps, so I had a play. I've seen lots of cards with stamps around the edge of card recently so thought I would have a go. I'm not sure I've succeeded, but I still quite like it. I had a couple of pieces of spare card on my desk so went with the colours of those and added a little green. I used the sentiment included in the pack and added a birthday sentiment with more of the card. I thought it needed something with the red card so I embossed it. It already had a curved corner so I went with that too. Somehow the photo has distorted the card and the centre looks like it's not straight? it is, as I used my T square ruler LOL.

stamps - Tonic, mag freebies
distress inks - Candies Apple, Twisted Citroen, Rusty Hinge
emboss folder - John Next Door, mag freebie
sentiment - mag freebie
Kraft card - Dovecraft
red card - Lidl 
I know I followed a sketch, but have forgotten which - sorry.

Wow, this is a wonderful card, Faith. Vere great colors and stamping.
I love it when a magazine adds stamps you can use with all their inspiration. I used to have a stamp magazine that came with a free stamp e Ery month.

Those colours are lovely Faith and almost enough to make me feel better about the coming autumn. I'm just not ready to say goodbye to summer and I don't want to start wearing a coat! They say the camera doesn't lie don't they, but in my experience the camera lies all the time!!!
Hope you are well, Vicky x

Faith, I think your stamping is exquisite! Exactly the correct amount for that stamp and the deep, fall colors are marvelous. Beautifully done. 😊
