Water-Colored Autumn

Good Morning My Friends, Welcome Visitors!

I had quite a surprise today!  I was putting away all of my Halloween crafting stuff and I discovered a big folder tucked away with my Halloween papers filled with Thanksgiving paper, brads, stamps and stickers!  I must have purchased it last year, but it away and forgot about it!  Most of it is Carta Bella "Autumn", but there is also Lori Whitlock "The Story of Fall".

I also found some WONDERFUL Candy to give away for Christmas...more about that in a few days...

So, here is my water colored card:

I used the Carta Bella Stamp set - Autumn and the paper & brads are from that set too.  The bling is Liquid Pearls, the water color is painted with shiny Pearlescent paint. If you click on the photo to make it bigger, you can see the sparkle!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Craftin Desert Divas - Linky Party "Make It Sparkle" Week 1
Dragonfly Journeys - "You Leaf Me Breathless"
