This Is the Day the Lord has Made

Like all the months this year it seems September is flying by too!  Here it is already the middle of the month and time for Jan's Digital Stamp Shop's mid-month inspirational posting.

For today, I've selected her new Pumpkin Pie package, and I'm using the image with the grouping of pumpkins and fall leaves.  This one could use just about any fall sentiment you'd like or even a Happy Birthday or Get Well greeting. 


I sized the image to about 4" square and printed it on 110# Neenah cardstock.  All the coloring was done with Copic markers.

After selecting the orange and black plaid background cardstock, I used the Tattered Lace Nested Beaded Chain Square dies for both the image and the plaid background.  I cut the card base from brown cardstock making it 6" square.

Although Jan has many sentiments that would have been perfect for this one, I have added the scripture from Psalm 118:24 and also cut the plaid matting to go behind this piece.  Each layer was then secured to the card base starting at the bottom with the large plaid matting. Before adding the sentiment, I added a layer of foam to raise it slightly.  Lastly I added the three enamel dots randomly around the image to complete the design. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. 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.
