Mark’s Finest Papers

For today's card I used pretty flocked paper from last years Autumn collection from Me & My Big Ideas. The image was colored with Copic Markers. Martha Stewart Laure Leaves punch around the page was used along with Spellbinders Scalloped and Oval Die Cuts. The leaves are also Spellbinders shapeabilites sponged with Ranger Distress inks. The Chrysanthemums were made with a Martha Stewart Punch. Please check the bottom of this post for a tutorial. The butterfly was a RAK from a special friend.

Don't you just love the rich colors of fall. This image brings out the best of fall colors. During the fall I see fox all the time crossing the road on my way home from work.

In closing, here is the card with the envelope I made to match. Hope you enjoyed viewing this new release from Mark's Finest Papers today. There is another image with this set that I plan on using soon that has a pheasant. Love it. Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow!
