Welcome Autumn!

We have finally started having some Autumn type weather here, well at least in the later evening and early morning! The days are still quite warm, but not as hot! On to my card!
I actually am working on creating more easy to mail items, so I decided black with Perfect Pearls might be nice. I used a foil (liner from a cake pan) panel, between the two black for what I was thinking to be like an old fashioned chalkboard!

After decided where I wanted my "Hayride" images from Artistic Outpost, they were stamped using clear embossing ink and then I applied the Perfect Pearls.
For the wooden sign, I stamped and cut this out and cut and trimmed another piece for the wording. Between the black and glimmer of the Perfect Pearls, I did find it a little difficult to photograph!

There is still a week left to enter in Artist Outpost's "October Referral Program" and it is Anything Goes, but just use those AO stamps! Thank you for stopping by and enjoy!

You definitely captured the feeling of an old blackboard.
The Perfect Pearls were a wonderful idea.

What I like the best is how you cleverly use products you already have to create the latest looks (chalkboard).
