Ready for Fall...Vintage-Style

I can't tell you how much I love these new papers from
My Mind's Eye Spider's Web Collection
.
After rounding off the corners of my base card, I distressed the edges using a sanding file and then began layering my papers and elements. You may recognize that gold-striped paper from the GCD'S Provence Collection...that's sure getting a lot of mileage!
The frame was cut from some of Martha Stewart's Halloween paper and I used The Paper Company's 'Fall' sentiment. Top off with some vintage lace, fabulous ribbon, Prima Flowers, brads and pearls and a glittered leaf (cut from the Spellbinders Leaves Set) and you have yourself a very unique card for the fall season.

I mentioned earlier that I would be sharing my post for Artful INKables tonight, but my camera battery completely died. So tomorrow's errands will include purchasing a new battery and then I will be back with some fabulous gift tags using
AI's newest Holiday rubber stamp set.
See you tomorrow!
