All Occasion Card

Good morning!

It's been really hot here in Southern California and I am so ready for it to cool off.  Thinking of that, I decided Fall colors were the way to go for my card today.  I used one of my favorite Popcorn the Bear stamp sets, Bunches of Love.  This large stamp is perfect for any occasion.  I decided not to include a sentiment for my card, so I could use it whenever I needed a last minute card.

I used my Cricut Expression to cut out the shaped squares on my card and inked up the edges with some brown chalk.  I colored the image with Copic Sketch Markers.  Finally, I found a bit of ribbon I had left over from another project and added a bow to the bottom of the card, as well as some copper pearls along the edges.  Like most scrappers and card makers I hoard left over bits of paper and ribbons.  You never know when you might use them, right?  

Hope you've enjoyed the card today.  Have a wonderful rest of the week :)
