Autumn Blessings

I'm so grateful for my followers.  You give me encouragement and inspiration.  I'm also grateful for all the other bloggers out there who put their creations up for everyone to enjoy, and I gain so many creative ideas from watching their blogs.  It makes creating SO much more fun.  Thanks to everyone for their part in crafting.

I found this card challenge through one of my follower's blogs.  I haven't played along at My Mind's Eye in a while, and it was fun to use some of my MME items that have been sitting around unused for far too long.  All the patterned papers are MME, as well as the three punch-out die-cut elements, and the vintage metal button.  The only things I used that are not MME are my hand-made scrunched seam binding, two K & Co. decorative brads, and the rub-on, jute and leaves.  I machine stitched along the outside of the MME background paper and inked the edges.  My Mind's Eye products are simply awesome.
