Simon Says Stamp October Card Kit Blog Hop!

Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp 
October Card Kit Blog Hop! This kit is titled:

I love this kit as it starts to transition colors to fall, but with a girly twist. I'm not typically a pink kind of person, but the combination of colors in this kit has me inspired!

I've created a card using items from the kit and I took the colors from the papers to paint the gold embossed heart. 


I have to tell you though, this is not what I had in mind when I started out. I was going to watercolor my heart and cut it out, but once I had the overpainted stripes, I kinda liked it. So I trimmed the panel out to fit onto a smaller 4 bar card.


I love it when happy accidents happen or you get something unique during the process of creating.
