Happy Harvest

I had time to make one more card this evening while my kids were busy playin' with friends! I ordered this cute Autumn Harvest set from the Holiday Mini too. I think it is sooo darling..I can't wait to use it with the little face to make a jack-o-lantern! I also attempted to watercolor it with the aqua painters I got, but I think I am gonna need to practice still! It's a tricky thing! It didn't turn out quite the way I was hoping it would....oh well. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the wild wasabi paper, and added a strip of chocolate chip with acorns stamped on it. I sponged the edge of the white paper in river rock and added the happy harvest sentiment from my Loads of Love set in choc. chip. This orange anchor I had matched well with the pumpkin pie paper...just a lucky find at Archivers! Last but not least I added a few strips of Wild Wasabi ribbon! Have a wonderful rest of your Wednesday!! :) ...Tara
