Thinking of you

It's time for my weekly SP and Company DT post and I have finally started making some fall-themed cards! I know most of you are probably working on Christmas and Valentine's cards! But I just can't go that far ahead!!
I love woodgrain papers but I run out so quickly. So what's a girl to do? Make her own of course!

I took the Wooden It Be Nice background set and heat-embossed it in dark brown onto white cardstock (which I always have). Then I sponged on a medium brown ink over the entire card to complete the look.
I added some wide pale blue ribbon and Twinery Twine in Mandarin. To attach the twine I poked 5 holes at the top of the card, threaded the twine on a needle, and ran it through and around.

I punched a few leaves from yet more of my scrap papers (the same ones as my last card!). Finally, I added a sentiment from Bold Sentiments I and popped the doily with foam.

Now I have a seasonally appropriate card to use for multiple occasions! Thanks for stopping by today! Remember - you still have a few more days to apply to be on the SP and Company Design team! See details here.
