Fall Pumpkins!

Hello Friends!

Today I have a fun fall Tilda card to share with you.  I got inspiration for the layout from Jenny Pete.  I loved the country feel of her card.  Fall is finally here so I pulled out my fall stamps and started coloring.  After I colored Tilda with Pumpkins, I decided to do a cracked glass technique to make the card look a little more rustic.  What do you think?

The paper is by MME and I distress it.  The background layer is stitched around the edges.  The image is colored on cryogen paper.  The flourish is a spellbinders die.  I finished her off with four brads around the outside perimeter of the card.

Here is the colored image before the cracked glass technique:

Here is the image after the cracked glass technique:

The inside of the card.  I finished it with a little tag so that I could put a note in it.
