This months Photo is perfect for this time of the year! I had so much fun with this new challenge.
Here is the card, I created inspired by this photo :)
To make this card, I diecut the rectangular panel using a black card stock. I also die cut the Awesome word die in gold card stock. Then I stamped the dots using circle stamps (these circle stamps are grouped together in the set, I cut have cut them apart to use them separately) with Gold Delicata Ink. I clustered the dots on top and spread them out moving down. I also stamped the year 2017. To finish I added wood veneer hearts after inking them in gold. I have used Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies Awesome Word Die and Balloons and Banners and Sketchy Alphabet Stamp set

I hope you like it and will play along with us, For more inspiration and details on the challenge, click HERE.
