Harvest Days

     A friend and I were crafting together yesterday and I used one of her fall stamps.  It turns out she bought it from Victorine Originals and she had a link to their website.  Can you believe I've never heard of them before and they even have a challenge!   This time they have a beautiful inspiration photo and that's the reason I chose this particular image to stamp and use on my card.  Let me show both of them to you and you can tell me what you think.


I also used the sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas.

     I used Copics and colored pencils to color it, then die cut both the image and the frame using dies from Tattered Lace.  All the papers are from SU and the little Bird on a Branch was cut with a Cottage Cutz die.
