I love Fall and all the colors that go with it. I wanted to use color that you would not normally put together. The back ground is stamped with assorted leaves. You can read more about my inspiration on my blog. Please stop by and let me know what you think.

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Sponge around your card. I used CTMH Twilight Ink.
Randomly stamp around the base of your card with the leaves in different colors of green.
I used Close To My Heart: Olive, New England Ivy, Garden Green, Ponderosa Pine.
Stamp the Charmed background stamp in CTMH Black on Lagoon C/S.
Cut around the stamped image and sponge with CTMH Twilight.
Cut a Black mat about 1/4" bigger and sponge around that in CTMH in Black and adhere to the back of the Lagoon stamped C/S the set aside.
With the Close To My Heart Artiste cartridge cut the Accent 4 image from page 58 @ 1 1/4" in Sunset and sponge with CTMH Sunset.
The tag shape is from page 31 3D Object cut @1 3/4" in Colonial White and sponged with Sunset.
Cut a 1/2 circle in Chocolate for the center of the flower. ****Tip**** (Be sure to use the Real Dial button when making Circles with you Cricut). This will give you a truer circle shape...
Place a CTMH Brown & Tan Sparkle in the center and adhere it to the edge of the Lagoon C/S
Sponge a coordinating color on your CTMH Seam Binding Ribbon. I use CTMH Black. Tie it using a knot around the Lagoon and Black C/S.
Using the Tag that you cut and stamp it with your giveThanks stamp CTMH Black. Put Sunset Bakers twine through the hole and tie it in bow around the knot in the Ribbon.
On the back of the Lagoon and Black C/S cut and place 4 small pieces of the 3D Foam tape.
Remove the backing from the tape and adhere it to the front in the center of your card. For a little pizas take your Black sponge and quickly go all the way around the edge of your card to ad detail. Pretty simple!!!
