Pumpkin Spice

I have four siblings...starting in August, there is a birthday every month through November.  This year, they are all getting a handmade card.  This card is for my sister Brenda who better NOT throw it away!!

I am going to do some masking and stamping.  Getting ready to go, I taped off the boarder.  I want an edge that is not rigid so I tore the paper befor I taped it down.

Now, to start stamping.  I started in the front and continued until the card was filled with stamped imaages.  It is at this point that I do not want to grab wrong colors or it is go back to step one.
  The images are loosely colored with Copic markers.  White dots were added to some darker leaves with a paint pen.  Bronze and gold distress paint were used for accents on the leaves and acorns.  The "happy" was heat embossed.  A die cut "birthday" was added.

Now this birthday card is framed up for a spectacular birthday.  Brenda is a gardener and so I think she will love her birthday card!  I think I might be her favorite sister this year!
