In Vino, Veritas

     I was looking through my collection of autumn images and ran across this one from ArtbyMiRan which I'd not used before now.  I remember when I got it, it seemed that I had to have it right then!  Unfortunately, it got downloaded and went to right the back burner. :(   But now I'm using it as a salute to the autumn grape harvest going on in the wine country of California.

    I colored the image with my ProMarkers, then die cut the frame with my newest Cheery Lynn die.  The die cut is embossed, too.   I mounted that to the purple card front with Pop Dots, giving some texture as well as dimension.  I added the purple bow and the matted sentiment and it was finished.  Very fast card, once the coloring was done.
