Blessings Card





Happy Sunday everyone! I made todays card with a couple of challenges in mind. I used the sketch from Cardibilities and the fall theme from Getting Cricky and Fantabulous Cricut. I cut the frames from Accent Essentials at 3 inches. I printed off the sentiment on my computer and then used the center point function on my Expression to do the back layer. The leaves and acorn are cut from Doodlecharms at 1.5 inches. I chalked around the edges and embossed the top of the acorn with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I pop dotted the leaves and acorn and I turned up the brown edges of the frame to give it a more layered look. Here are the challenges I'm entering this card into:
1. Cardabilities- sketch
2. Fantabulous Cricut- Falling leaves
3. Getting Cricky- Fall themed
