Fall, Family & Friends

 Today I'd like to share with you a sentiment based card from Polka Dot Orchard.  This one was designed by artist Lea Keisling and is named Thank God for Fall.

This package contains this beautiful 'subway art' styled prayer giving thanks to God for several of our fall season blessings along with two styles of leaves. 

For my card today I elected to focus on the sentiment and sprinkle several of the leaves down each side.  After printing to about 2 1/2" x 4", I colored the leaves with my Copic markers.  I selected three solid mats and a Kraft card base, then used a standard X-stitched nesting die to build the layers.  

After cutting and securing to the card base, I added a thin tan twine wrap and bow. I also added an extra white die cut mat inside for writing to complete the card.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
