Bitten by the Bug Challenge!

This week on Bitten by the Bug, we had to use the border option on the Walk in my Garden cartridge. I am in such a fall mood that I really wanted to use the leaves. I can't really decide if I am liking this card....I wasted tons of paper on this one! Boo hoo too since it was my good Basic Grey, Mellow paper! Anyhoo, I played around with this one for many hours....not days like some of my cards...but hours! I ended up using some old fern stamps and using my crackle medium over it. I used my Spellbinders die to cut and emboss...which by the way, is a little tricky! Maybe it is just me...but I have a really hard time embossing then cutting and making sure it is all lined up just the right way! Then....I added glitter! Anytime I don't like a card, I add glitter! I keep thinking that if I glitz it up a bit, I'll like it more. I don't know if the glitter really helped in this case : )

I like the look of this card, and your glitter is great

Yup, glitter always adds something in my opinion, But your card could have stood on its own even without it. Love those fall colors, helps me transition into a new season. And even if it doesn't need it, The glitter still looks great!
