Autumn Greetings

We had a FUN and EASY
assignment at The Cutting Cafe using 

I had recently purchased some very bright card stocks
that are a lighter weight, making them perfect to run 
through my printer and perfect color for  the cards I created.

The two cards I am showing you today print on one sheet of
8 1/2 x 11 card stock.

I love how beautifully they print and what a perfect size they are!

For the first card, I cut it so I had a nice even edge around it
leaving my black card stock base showing.
I know you can;t see it, but I took a metallic gold
gelly roll pen and outlined over the black printed lines
giving it a bit of sparkle.

A few greens were die cut and I added some flowers
and a few sequin flowers to finish.
I loved the sentiment on this one as the card certainly is 'bright'!

The second card I pretty much did the same thing,
except I used the same gelly pen to outline the sentiment as well.

I used an old stamp (2002) I had
and Sparkle N Sprinkle Copper Mountain embossing powder
for my image.
If you could see this IRL, you would see all the sparkle on it.

I finished it off by simply using a scrap of ribbon from RRR
and a wood heart button.
