Autumn Beauty Blog Hop

I am totally stoked to be participating with all of these super talented stampers in showcasing Theresa's Autumn Beauty stamp set. This stamp set has all the fall images that you need. My absolute favorites are the sunflower images. I love sunflowers. There is a farm near my apartment that has two fields full of these golden yellow beauties. They make me smile every time I drive by. And of course who doesn't like fall colored leaves and fun scarecrows. I was actually dozing off in my boyfriend's car yesterday on the way home from his birthday lunch when I dreamed this layout up. Crazy, huh? So here is my Autumn Beauty card.

All stamped images are from Autumn Beauty sold at Gina K Designs. I used Pumpkin Spice, Soft Sand, & Vanilla Pure Luxury Card Stock. The pattern paper with the fall leaves is from Target Dollar Spot last year. I also pulled out my sewing machine for this one. I love the look of real stitches on hand stamped cards and wanted to make this card as special as possible for Theresa's blog hop. I hope my Autumn Beauty card inspires you to go stamp some beautiful fall cards.

For more inspiration, please check in on our Illustrator of Autumn Beauty, Theresa Momber. She has also designed a beautiful digital paper pack called All About Autumn that is available for purchase as well. Be sure to leave a comment on Theresa's blog for a chance to win this stamp set!
