A Thanksgiving Mantle

Happy Sunday to all my stamping friends!  FINALLY cooler weather has found it’s way to Maryland! *smiles*

My sincere appreciation to the very talented Mary Fish for giving me this opportunity to share a card with you.  Thank you Mary!

Sometimes it’s funny where you pull your inspirations from when making a card.  The other day I was redoing our mantle for the fall…..left in the middle of what I was doing to decorate a mantle on a card!

I just love the new EF –Designer Frames!  Although its not real easy to see, the mantle is embossed with the Framed Tulips folder.  The foliage is a mix of fall colors and leaves.  I sponged all the edges of each piece with it’s corresponding ink color.  The acorns came from the Gently Falling stamp set.  Here looking a little closer ~

The Brushed Gold card stock for the candles did not give me that really bright shinny gold that I was looking for, But using my gold leaf pen on Whisper White card stock did.

I kept the inside simple ~ and is a better look at the embossing for the mantle.

Thanks For Stopping By, I enjoyed having you!!!
