Harvest Blessings

The temps are cooling down here in Kansas City, making for some nice crisp mornings/evenings and although everything is still green Fall will be here in no time.  This week over at Cooking It Up With Katie the team has created some wonderful projects perfect for fall!  We are sponsored this week by Digital Delights and they have some super cute images!

Our challenge this weeks is as follows:

"Use a Punch, Include a Pair (2 of the same thing or 2 ribbons, 2 flowers etc), and Make a Pocket (this can be real or faux, even on the image counts).

 I started by making my card base using the pattern from CTMH Orignials book called "invitation" on 
page 81. I grabbed some scraps and this fun fall paper from Cloud 9 Design paper pad. I cut my tags using my Cricut and Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. I chose to work with the "Harvest Blessings" sentiment from the fall sentiments set and distressed the edges before adding to my tags.  Now the fun part- I added what looks like stitching (in CTMH chocolate ink)  to my cream piece using a tracing wheel (thanks Sue for teaching us this technique)!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
