I've been keeping a secret - Just for Fun

Happy Monday to all of you! It is a beautiful autumn day here in MN, the air is crisp and the sun is shinning. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a Happy Halloween. Today I get to share a secret with all of you that I have been keeping for quite awhile! Don't you just love secrets?! *wink* A while back I received an email from Sherry Cheever asking me to join a new design team! I am very honored to say I am now part of the first ever Design Team for Just For Fun Rubber Stamps!! Sherry is our Design Team Coordinator and we have a wonderfully talented group of ladies on the Just For Fun Design Team! I have links to all of the Design Team members listed below and I hope you will take a little time to visit each of them and leave a little love.

Here is my card to share with you today.I had so much fun coloring the Floral Oval VI (G1809) stamped image. I used Copic markers (listed below) in yellows, orange and red to color the flowers. The colors look like the beautiful leaves on my neighbor's maple tree. For the card base I used Between the Lines Ooh La La designer paper from My Mind's Eye. For a mat I used brown cardstock and then layered it with Over the Top Ooh La La designer paper from My Mind's Eye. On the My Mind's Eye paper I stamped the French Script (F1849) in the background with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink from Tsukineko and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger. Then I used Spellbinders Fancy Tags S4-235 die templates to make a tag for the sentiment Just a Note (WB8010). I made the diecut tag twice, once for the sentiment and the second one for layering another color. The flower embellishment started out white and I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink from Ranger, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red from SU to ink the flower. I also added some green lace trim and pearls.Supplies~
