Bits and Bobs #20

Hi! I hope you are having a good day. I want to show you a bits and bobs Fall card I made. I have been finding some interesting things in my stash since I started this bits and bobs series this year! I found a pattern book for paper piercing that was written in Swedish! Now my friends will tell you that paper piercing is NOT what I like to do, but I searched through this book and found a simple pattern and endured to the end! LOL! I laid the pattern over green card stock and placed them on a mouse pad so that I could poke holes with a pin.

This process is time consuming so that is why I used this simple frame pattern. I liked how it turned out.

I sponged on a little Distress Vintage Photo ink over the top of the piercing so that it would stand out a little more.

The gourds ( Just For Fun ) and leaf ( Rubber Stampede ) were already stamped and embossed in my stash, so I fussy cut them and pop dotted them in the frame. I added old rhinestones and a lace border to finish the card.  

Thanks so much for stopping by. It is time to get all those Fall cards made. I hope I have inspired you to make some using your old and interesting stuff! Have a wonderful day!
