It's September with a hint of fall in the air....
The cooler nights in my part of the country make me think of fall.
So I am bringing to the Classy Cards 'n such blog today a pretty fall card.
What can be better then a wheelbarrow full of pumpkins, gourds and bittersweet?
This lovely stamp is from the Flourishes set "Autumn Blessings".....
I stamped it on watercolor paper and colored it in with my TH Distress Ink Markers
You can purchase the markers HERE or join the Distress Marker Club HERE
The lovely sentiment is one I love "Give Thanks for the simple things in life".
It is part of the same Flourishes set "Autumn Blessings".

For the layers of my card I used a Cheery Lynn Designs Doily Die "French Pastry"
(you can also purchase this die in a tiny cute!...HERE )
and Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight cut from the paper pad Authenique "Vintage Blue"
I added a ribbon under the layers for a hint of color.
A few other items I used to make my card
Cherry Lynn Designs Crafters Tools...these are wonderful to use with the intricate dies
Scor-Tape 1/2" ...I used every time to adhere the layers on my comes in several other widths
as well, you can find it HERE
Thank you for visiting!
