September 2014 Papertrey Blog Hop

This month's blog hop over at Papertrey Ink inspired us with this gorgeous photo:
I used the following colour combination for my card:
Such a soothing colour recipe!
I made a cover plate cut with Autumn Rose and put it on a piece of clear cardstock.  I left a bit of an overhang to attach to the Soft Stone base.  I then adhered 6 layers of Smokey Shadow Wet Paint die cuts to each other to make a sturdy sentiment, adding one to the inside of the card for a clean look.
 A few more shots to see it close up ...

And that's it!  I will write my message on the back of the card to leave the inside pristine.  I often make this kind of card and add some stamping to the inside so you can see through the clear cardstock ... a different take on a regular card!

What a fabulous card! I love the lattice over the clear cardstock and the sentiment almost seems to float! Most excellent!

This is FANTASTIC!
I LOVE how the hello just pops, with 6 layers it doesnt even look like paper!!
Happy Hopping!
Have a GREAT Day!
