Fall card for Grandma!

My grandma is having kind of a rough time right now and has been on my mind a lot lately. I was thinking of her this morning when I made this card.

I used the With Gratitude stamp set from Stampin' Up! It has become one of my very favorite sets! I was drawn back to the colors that I used for my Holiday Card Swap. I used Old Olive, Really Rust, So Saffron and Very Vanilla. I stressed the edges with a fun tool that I bought at a scrapbook convention back in August! I antiqued the edges of my rectangles with a charcoal cat's eye stamp pad and used Old Olive for the rest of the stamped images. I used bright gold brads and ribbon that matches the old olive to a tee! I embossed the large maple leaf and used a pop dot to lift it off the page. I loved the way the gold and red melted together!

I wound up making a second card like this for my mom and a third for my new pen pal! So if you guys are reading this...close your eyes!! :)

Happy Monday everyone!

What a pretty card! I love the details.

I'm sorry to hear that your Grandma is going through rough times. I felt the same way last week with my Grandma... she had brain surgery.

My prayers are with you,

The leaf on this is gorgeous!

I'm so sorry to hear your grandmother isn't well. Hopefully this will cheer her up and she will get better quickly. Many hugs and prayers.
