Just thinking of you - PTI blog hop

Hi everyone! I got a chance to play in this month's PTI blog hop. The challenge:

This month's inspiration is all about autumn patterns, textures & textiles.  Think warm & cozy woolens, houndstooth, tweed, burlap, felt, corduroy. herringbone and even argyle.

The houndstooth embossing folder was used on the kraft cardstock and then I used a stipple brush to add some definition using fresh snow ink.

The green cardstock was embossed using the plaid embossing folder. I decided to keep things pretty clean and simple for this card. I really had a lot of great ideas in my head that never quite made it down onto my card. In other words, I stopped and started way too many times with this challenge! LOL!

Mat stack 2 collection used to stamp the sentiment and the decoration. Green brads anchor things down. Bow tied with the Bow Easy.

 Thanks for stopping by!
