Fall Ball Blog Hop

Welcome to the Fall Ball Blog Hop,
brought to you by the design teams of...
Made Especially For You and I Heart {ippity}!

Today we're happy to share with you all sorts of fall-themed projects to get you in the mood for a season full of crisp leaves, bountiful pumpkin patches, warm apple cider,
and all those other things we love that make fall such a wonderful time of year.

If you've come from Eileen's blog, you're in the right place.
If you just came across the hop and would like to start at the beginning,
please visit Made Especially For You.

For my project, I created this "Count your Blessings" card using this digital image HERE.


My card recipe:
Image colored in with my Copic markers, then cut out using a oval cutter.
Using the Cricut, "Elegant Edges" I cut a scalloped oval at 4-1/2" using the <Flower3> oval feature.
I mounted my image over the top of the Cricut scalloped oval.
Layer all pieces together, working back to front as shown in the photo.
Finishing touches:
Adhesive pearls around the scalloped oval and bottom right edge.
As well as a rich cranberry ribbon/bow



We also have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes!
