Bountiful Blessings

Hi there! I am loving that fall is here! I have our house all decorated for fall, so I decided it was time to start making some fall cards as well.

Before I get into telling you the details of this card, I have to share with you this cute story about paper! I'm a bit obsessed with paper! I told my husband that I *needed* some fall paper because I did not have any at all! So, I ordered the new My Mind's Eye All Spice paper pad. Then, I found last October's Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kit in my craft closet...full of fall papers and embellies! Oops! :) Oh well. A crafty girl can never have too much paper, right? :)

I made this card using the Mojo Monday 209 layout.

This adorable stamp is one of my new favorites. The bucket is from the Buckets of Love set by There She Goes, and the scarecrow image is from the Buckets of Love Holiday Additions set! I just love how these two sets work for all the holidays throughout the year. I stamped the image and colored it with Copic markers and cut it out with circle Nestabilities. It's layered on a circle cut out with Scallop Circle Nestabilities. I used Bisque Liquid Pearls to frame my image.

I stamped the sentiment onto the green patterned paper and added the blue scalloped border. I did lots of stitching and finished it off with an orange ribbon and some pearls.

This one is now for sale in my Etsy shop as well as lots of other cards if you're interested! :) Also, be sure to like my Facebook page, Polka Dot Paperie, where I post coupon codes for my Etsy shop!

That's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by! :)
