FALL CARD for Pals Paper Arts PPA115

A second post for today.  I rarely make a card for the Pals Paper Arts.  Since I had some time this morning and I had a stamp here from Penny Black that I had not used yet, I had a quick idea for a card.  The stamped design is 4180J Reverie.  It is versatile and could be used different ways.  

The card base was run through Spellbinders Grand Calibur with a 5 x 7 Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Since I wanted to have the card open and run it through I needed the wider opening of the Grand Calibur.  

I have two drawers of gems and pearls and don't use them often enough so I went digging and found a package with the two shades of gems from Recollections that had never been opened.  Perfect colors for Fall.  The image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and then trimmed the piece so it could be mounted onto a piece of SU Chocolate Chip card stock.  I randomly added the two shades of gems.  The "Autumn" stamp is a retired piece from Hero Arts and that piece was popped with foam squares.

Thank you for stopping by!  Your comments are always welcome...........I love hearing from you!
