Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

Today is October 25 and time for another Blog Hop Challenge at Papertrey Ink. Can't let an opportunity like this pass, especially with this beautiful inspiration photo. So, I'm sneaking in a little crafty time before I start baking for our company.

Here's my card and I'm pretty sure my aunt will appreciate this for her 91st birthday. 

Even though it's hard to see, I scored the Soft Stone card stock and swiped it back and forth with some Soft Stone ink and a paint brush to create the wood panel look. The leaves were ink blended, and the veins stamped. Added some glossy accents to the berries and popped up the acorns. Added the sentiment in Terracotta Tile, adhered to a Dark Chocolate layer, which is attached to a white card base. Hope to find time tonight to hop along admiring all the gorgeous projects showcased on Nichole's blog today.
