Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge

This is my card for Geri's Harvest Theme challenge on Mark's Finest Papers blog this week. I chose a soon-to-be-released set from MFP called Autumn Fun. Look for it in September.



After stamping the basket of leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black, I colored it with Copic markers in various fall colors. Before removing the circle Nestabilities die, I sponged around the edge with Tim Holtz Distressed Wild Honey. One of my favorite neutrals has become MFP Corn Husk, so that's what I used for my background, matting the circle and some fall patterned paper from K & Company with MFP Hazelnut. How do you like that acorn charm? I thought it was really cute. The sentiment is stamped in Palette Burnt Umber and clear embossed.



A Canadian friend of mine gave me these salt and pepper shakers. She divides her time between Sudbury, Canada and Florida.
