Paper Trey Ink blog hop



I am so excited to be participating in this blog hop!! It is my first one...
For this months challenge, we were to create a card inspired by autumn, either colors, texture etc.

I love Autumn so much... For this card, I used burlap frayed at the edges of course, with stamps from two of my favorite sets. The sentiment and flowers are from Autumn Abundance and the basket is from the Vintage Baskets set
I also used Paper Treys vintage touch system inks in both chamomile and chai for distressing.

some twine and textured cardstock finished off this autumn card!
Thanks for looking!!
