Autumn Gourds

So, it's almost autumn!  Well, it technically IS autumn, but it was 95*F here today.  Blarg.  I've decided to make an offering to the autumn fairy in hopes that cooler weather will find us!!!  I've used a fabulous freebie from Beccy's Place--it's gorgeous!

Here's my card~

Details~







For these fabulous challenges~






So, I started by water coloring the image using dark yellows, browns, and oranges.  I then spritzed the image with gold glimmer mist, dry embossed it, and added it to my card base!  Did you notice that I also decorated the inside?!  I rarely do that, but I wanted a sentiment...it just took too much away from Beccy's amazing digi!

Thanks for stopping by!  I love it when you come by to say hi and I appreciate all your kind words!!!  Please come and play along with us at these fabulous challenges--I adore seeing your work!  Happy stamping! :)

Hi Mynnette - this is gourd-geous! - Jacqueline xx
P.S - no sympathy with the heat thing - I had to have a hot water bottle last night my feet were so cold!

Gorgeous! I just love the way you embossed your image. Very striking. I seldom do the inside either, but I'm always stretched for time. Very nice. Thanks for joining us at {Pin}spirational Challenges.

Oh so pretty! I LOVE those big pearls and your ribbon on this beautiful card! Lovely image too.
Down here in Texas (south), we're still hitting the 90's too! Maybe next month we'll get cooler weather.

Love the soft Autumn colors on you focal image Mynnette! A lovely card my friend. It seems the fall colors have come to the trees here in just the blink of an eye. And our daytime temps are in the high 60s this week.

The card is so glitter glitter yet sober. I love the way you have embossed the image and chosen all soft colours. It's a treat to eyes.
