Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Feel So Good stamp set (September SOTM), From the Heart Card Kit (September National Stamping Month special), White & Bronze Twine, Falling For You Paper Packet, Inks (Nutmeg, Fern). and Memento Black Ink.

I used the Feel So Blessed stamps along with this month’s Card Kit special. You can purchase additional cards to create more! The zip strip fits perfectly along the bottom of this card. I stamped the leaves with Memento ink on B&T paper and fussy cut.
