Autumn Blessings as You Go Card

Be sure to get your cat crafting supplies dusted off for the
2017 Cat Lovers Hop
Oct. 23-28, 2017
Right here at Her Peaceful Garden.

Don't forget the GIVEAWAY for 
displaying my 2017 Cat Lovers Badge.

Hi, Friends......

A dear couple in our church is moving to be closer to family and medical care. It's hard to see them go, but we know it is a wise decision. I was asked to make a large-format card so everyone could sign it. I went with an autumn theme and used the current Viva la Verve Sketch.

The scripture reads:  "Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know."  Jeremiah 33:3

For my background, I pulled out a sheet from my stack of marker refill water backgrounds and heat embossed a variety of autumn leaves all over it in gold. LOVE!! I splattered it slightly with water to let the dyes react and sponged around the edges and some of the leaves with Distress Ink. The sentiment is one from my Verve - Scripture Medley 3 stamp set.
Supplies used include:
Verve - Scripture Medley 3 stamp set
Versafine ink - Vintage Sepia
Clear embossing powder
Various leaf stamps from my stash
Versamark ink
Gold embossing powder
Distress Inks
Silk leaves from my stash
Gold glitter glue
Gold sequins
Gold ribbon
Hope you enjoyed my card. Thank you so much for stopping by. Remember to get ready for the Cat Lovers Hop on Oct. 23-28!!! Meow.
