One of the girls in my cardmaking group sent me a few backgrounds awhile ago. Every now and then I try to break up where I get my goodies that I am using from, sometimes I look into my not used basket, or my coloring images, or the way too many cardmaking magazines I have and the other place is the little extras that I get when a fellow cardmaker has sent me a card and that is what I used today. It looks to me like she did some Alcohol ink background and then embossed it, I thought it would work great for another Autumn birthday, so I paired it with my layered flower die and to tone down the metallic I added some lace, what do you think of combining the two? It was white lace but too me was a little too white so I sponged some brown ink over top.
I was a little disappointed in the tag, after I had stamped it I could read it very well, but by the time I went to take a picture of it I noticed that it had lightened up quite a bit. I could read it ok in person but it looks even lighter in the picture, hopefully my niece will be able to read it :)

Gemini - Dahlia die (flower and leaf)
Lace - sponged ink over it to dull it out a bit

I am in head for a busy day, I have to take down all my Autumn decorations, dust and sweep, then put up Christmas, I have a feeling it won't all get done today as it is nice weather today so we have decided to put up all the outdoor lights too. Have you started your Christmas decorating yet?
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
