This is another card we made at our Club Meeting in August.  


The base of this card is Mossy Meadow cardstock--chosen to coordinate with the pretty designer paper from the Rustic Harvest DSP!  The "Thank You" is from the Charming Sentiments bundle (links for all product can be found below).  The vine was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, and colored with a Water Painter and ink refills--Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow.  Hint:  use a palette for your refills to keep your stamp pads clean!  Or, even an stamping block!  Then, cut with Layering Circles Dies and the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine!  Simple but striking card!
