Stamp N Plus Thanks card

I have a fall like card to share today I really like to color in this Pumpkin and Flower Barrel stamp with powdered chalk mixed with paint. The sort of rugged affect fits perfect with any fall theme project. 

This card is very simple. I stamped the image onto white cardstock and colored it in with different colored powdered chalk mixed with paint both by Stamp N Plus. I fussy cut the image out and set it aside. The card base is by Recollections. I adhered a piece of unknown brown cardstock to the left and a piece of K and Co embossed paper to the right. 

I die cut the sentiment from my Cricut and adhered it and the image on top of the patterned paper. Then I set it aside and pondered it for a couple of months. It needed something more but I couldn't figure out what. I pulled it out just this past week and thought what if I ink the edges with distress ink and an ink blender by Ranger? It always seems to work on my other projects. So that's what I did and now I'm happy with the results. 

Thanks for stopping by.
