The Heart Desires September Guest Designer

I'm so excited to be joining The Heart Desires as a guest designer for September!!
Here is my first card:

I was so excited I *might* have picked up some new goodies from The Heart Desires store!!
I've used Strathmore watercolor paper with dark brown Brusho crystals for my base. This was my first time using Brusho crystals & it is quite an adventure!
Once that was dry I pulled out the new  Concord & 9th's Give Thanks set and stamped the sentiment in vintage sepia versafine ink using my misti; I added versamark and clear embossing powder over the top so that I could stamp the wheat in Delicata Golden Glitz over the top. The veins are stamped in the same versafine brown. 
Using the Concord & 9th Layering Leaves Dies I cut the wheat & rubbed them with more of the gold ink before attaching to the watercolor panel. 
A few spatters of water topped with gold embossing powder finishes this fun fall card off!
Thank you to the entire Heart Desires team for inviting me to join you this month!
I will be back with another card at the end of the month; for now you should head over to the store as Tonya has a ton of new items!!
