Cornstalk and Pumpkin card

Thanksgiving is so close
and that is the theme of this weeks
Check out the particulars on the
and then join in the fun.
I chose to use
"Cornstalk and Pumpkin"  (#29802) from
for my card.
For the background I taped a paper doily over white card stock,
then used a sponge applicator to apply
Distress Ink over the doily.
When I removed the doily,
I had a beautiful background panel for this card.
The Cornstalk and Pumpkin image was stamped with
brown Color Box Fluid Chalk Ink
and colored with water color crayons.
I love this simple image, to me it says
"Thanksgiving"
I like the idea of the Thanksgiving image
 over the "lace tablecloth" look of the background panel.
I used my Perfect Layers tool to get the perfect mats on
my card without the trouble of measuring.
Easy to use and perfect every time.
 
Thanks for stopping by today.
Why not stop by the Eureka! Stamps Store and
see all the wonderful images they offer
in red rubber and digital format alike.
 
Then stop over to the Perfect Paper Crafting site
and see how the Perfect Layers works.
And keep your eyes open for a give away, here on my blog.
I'll be giving away a set of Perfect Layers Tools one day soon
so come back for a chance to win.
 
Until next time, Happy Crafting!

LOVE the background you created with the doily...and of course - there you go again with those water color crayons. :) I've thought about getting a set of those perfect layer things but never have...might have to look into that. Great card Kristie!!! (Of course I would expect nothing less from you) ;)
