Card measures 4.5 x 3.75"

Cardstock:  Bazzill Basics, Paper Accents, Bee Paper Co.
Pens:  Spectrum Noir
Cart:  Autumn Celebrations

Craziest thing with this cart, notice how it cut the bottom of the card base a bit off-set, so the lines didn't match up.
I just used scissors to trim up the rounded corner which turned out OK, but I was a tad disappointed with the original cut.

I am just loving the Autumn Celebrations cartridge!  In particular the "block shadow" artwork on it is fabulous!  Is there a Winter Celebrations cart that's similiar?  I'll have to do some checking.  This card couldn't have been easier to do, as the cart has a card and tag feature that virtually do all the work for you.  I cut a second base to adhere to the back of the outline so that I could color in the fruits with my SN pens.  Quick, simple, & fun!

"Bestest Friends"

For my friend Kim, who has helped out so much with neighborhood events this year.  She deserves a little recognition!  Embellishments:  Embossed Paper, Ribbon, & Pearl Pen.

Crazy how much light changes these colors - I always struggle to get them to show true.  Believe it or not, the middle star and the banner outline are actually the same cardstock!  IMHO, it truly was "cinnamon" glitter.


Inspiration pieces found in the CTMH Autumn 2012 Catalog, pg 46.

Cardstock:  Bazzill Basics, Recollections, & stash.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Black Soot & Walnut Stain Distress Inks.
