PDC # ~ Count Your Many Blessings!

We have a pretty blue sky and sunshine Monday! My hubby is back to work this week and I'm playing a bit of catch up with my household chores. I made a couple of cards over the weekend and I realized it had been way too long since I joined in the fun at the Play Date Cafe. Flamingo, Honey & Coffee sounded too good to pass up!


Their color story this week seemed perfect for a fall card. I paired this cute wheat stamp by Magenta with this bargain bin leaf stamp. I punched three strips of patterned paper with my Martha Stewart vintage doily punch and topped them off with some rustic cream button twine. My sentiment stamp is from Stampabilities. I decided to add some interest with this dotted circle from Hero Arts. I think it echos the punched borders and brought in a touch more of the brown. 


 Thanks for taking the time to visit my little corner of the world today! I hope you're enjoying pretty weather in your corner of the world! ~Lisa
