From the Heart - September Stamp of the Month

This card is for the monthly challenge at Delightful Inspiration {from the heart}. Faith Skrdla will gift you a digital image for each month you participate in the challenge. Isn't that way generous of her?!? It is a progressive challenge that started in September and at the time, the first image was free. Imagine my disappointment when I discovered this in January. In order to receive the freebie, you must make a purchase and request the freebie of the month, and as long as you continue participating in the challenge, you'll receive a free digi each month. For the month of September, the freebie image is Bobbing for Apples

Here is my card:

All card stock, button and twine are from my stash. The printed paper is from Daisy D's line called Feuillage, which is French for foliage. What a coincidence! I'm making a fall card! :) It's almost like I planned it that way! ;) lol By the way... I just knew that... I didn't have to look it up on Google. ;) I'm thinking the paper line is retired. I think I've had it like forever and a day! I've been sinful and I am on a mission to rid myself of my stash. I'm not allowing myself to purchase paper until I use ALL my paper... ummm... that seems like a really long time... cut it down to at least 50%... geez... ok... use a LOT of it. ;) I've colored the image with Copic markers. I hand wrote the sentiment and stamped small leaf images from a Raisin Boat clear stamp set called Formal Phrases onto a freehand cut banner. I dabbed Stickles in Star Dust on the lace of the girl's dress and in Baby Blue on the water. I covered all the apples with Glossy Accents to give them a shiny appearance. For me... it's always about the details. :)

I've written a few times before about how much I love, love, LOVE The Paper Shelter. I have oodles of their images because I just love them so much! Well, they are having a DT Call right now. I've tried talking myself out of it. I don't like rejection. However, what have I got to lose? Right? So I'm going for it! Because... in case I've not said this before... I love, love, LOVE The Paper Shelter! By the way, I have my Facebook badge on the right sidebar and my email address is listed on there! :)

Thanks for stopping by!
