Today I’m sharing another card I made using the Blended Seasons stamp set and Watercolor Pencils. I used the leaves and the “I just miss you” sentiment with some Autumnal colors that I blended with a Blender Pen. I cut the sentiment with the Everyday Label Punch. The background is made from card stock in the same Autumnal colors. I cut 4 different colors the same size, then quartered them diagonally. Since I just used one piece from each color, I have enough to make 3 more cards!

Here’s what I made:
