November SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Stamp of the
Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring November’s Stamp of the Month, Capture the Date, a set of 72 stamps.  If you have came here from Beth’s Blog,
you are on the right path.  The blog hop is a great big circle, you can
start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way,
you can find a complete list of participating consultants here.

 Close to My Heart is having an awesome promotion with the November Stamp of the Month.  Place a qualifying order to purchase the Stamp of the Month for only $5, and you can chose another stamp set of your choice for 50% off!

 I incorporated November 22 from the Capture the Date stamp set to make one layer of my background paper.  I used the Thanksgiving stamp from the So Grateful set for my additional layer.  I fussy cut my pumpkin and layered onto my Perfect Fit Frame, which was cut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I folded down the top edge of my burlap strip to give my card a cleaner finish.  My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at The Paper Players

I added an additional layer of pattern paper from the Florentine Paper pack to finish out the inside of my card.  The colors are perfect for Fall.
