A Scene with a Bench

Hello friends! 

It's another ordinary day here in my blog....

 I thought I would share a card with an ordinary object.

Penny Black Bench (Simon Says Stamp)

 This Bench Die is part of the Secret Garden from Penny Black's Spring release. I love the style and scale of this bench. In my neighborhood walk, I often pass by a stone bench and it always reminds me of this die.... weird, I know. But this is how I see my world....with stamps and dies.

 so thankful

After die cutting a few leaves, I decided to place and insert some in between the bench.

The die cut leaves were white-embossed on Distress Oxide-inked paper. I thought it would be great to have the sentiment right on the bench. Looks good, right?

so thankful

I die cut the entire piece with Stitches of Love Die and this really makes the card look polished.

so thankful -001

I hope that you are having a beauti-FALL day! BTW the Fall Foliage Die is now in stock over Scrapbook.com.
