*SweetStamps #119

Hello my sweet friends. 
Oh what a  great weekend we had here!! 
Lots of sun, fun and great food!!  Yummy. 
It was much needed time with the family, friends and a change in our everyday routine too.

So, today at SweetStamps we have a F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. challenge for you. 
This weeks theme is:
For my card today, I am using Autumn Blooms, which is from one of my favorite ATC stamps from SweetStamps. I stamped the image with my new French Roast, Ink Spot and colored with my Copics.
The paper is from Farm House, called  Sugar Hill.  They worked so beautifully with my colored imaged.
Once I cut the image out, I rubbed the inside of the frame with Antique and Walnut distress ink.
I added twine and a bottom to finish off the card.
