Enjoy Simple Beauty - RCC74

Welcome to another challenge from the Ribbon Carousel Blog!  Thanks to those who played along with last months challenge, the theme at the Ribbon Carousel Blog for the month of November is Thanksgiving or Fall.

I created a Fall themed card for the challenge, inspired by this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch, using images from the Artistic Outpost Old Grist Mill plate.


Stamps - Artistic Outpost Old Grist Mill
All pattern papers are from The Farm House Paper Company Sugar Hill Collection.  All stamped images were stamped on scraps of pattern paper.  The Old Grist Mill was colored with STAEDTLER Ergo Soft Colored Pencils, the leaves were stamped in Ranger Wild Honey Distress Ink and Jenni Bowlin Chili Powder, cut out and sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  To embellish I added Walnut Brown Vintage Seam Binding tied into a double bow, a button tied with Brown Jute and a bit of Natural Jute.
