Treehouse Thursday Challenge #67

Hello Thursday! This week's challenge is "Sponge the background". I tried to do something new this time. I took out the Cuttblebug embossing folder and used one of the dense kind of sponge and then dabbed on the embossed paper. I'm using the image from the September's new release called "Fall Blessings" (shop here)
Here's the close-up.
Hope you are enjoying the cooler temperature. I have so much to be thankful for and I am counting on my Bountiful Blessings (sentiment also from Treehouse). Please go here for more inspiration.
