Hi everyone! I am a veterinary technician living in NY who loves to pen pal and make cards in my spare time. I have never been good at crafts since I can barely draw a straight line with a ruler but I was determined to give it a go.  I love learning all the different techniques and ways to craft. Follow me on my journey as I grow as a card maker!

OSAAT Challenge #189

I got to do an extra project for OSAAT this week! How exciting! Our theme this week is Holidays.  We have a special prize! All of the images we have this week will be given to everyone who spends a certain amount in the store! For more details and inspiration head on over to the blog!

Here is my DT card:

I was able to work with this lovely Fall image.  I colored it with my promarkers.  I used papers from my stash.  A piece of my favorite mesh ribbon was added as well as some maple leaves.  I used stickles on the sentiment.  I added two pieces of orange washi tape in the upper left corner.  I know realize that it probably should have been brown tape since the orange blended too well.  We learn as we go, right? I used the sketch at From the Heart stamps for the card layout!  I hope you enjoy this fall card and join us in our Holiday themed challenge!
