Designs on Cloud 9

Thank you everyone for your great comments yesterday.  I got so many great ideas  and I am sure you did too.  For the hop today, I've created a Fall charger decorative plate and card.  I made charger plates last year for a Christmas boutique and they were very popular.  This week at Michaels they have Fall color charger plates 2 for $3.
The center circle measures 8 inches so I cut Count your Blessings from the Thanksgiving Cricut cart at 7 inches with gold vinyl.  I then weeded the vinyl and put it on transfer tape.
I then added leaves (Me and My Big Ideas Mambi Chips) and acorns and pine cones (Mambi stones).  These are all from Michaels in the scrapbook Fall section.
I made a card to match so I could give this as a gift.  I used the Brocade Window Cuttlebug Embossing Plus folder.  The pattern papers are DCWV Harvest stack from Joanns.  I used more of leaves left from plate, some ribbon, and inked paper with Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge ink.  The Thanks stamp is from Joanns dollar bing and the Happy Fall Y'all is from Pink Cricut.  

I hope you liked my project and have enjoyed all the great Fall projects these past two days.  If you missed the projects yesterday make sure you go through the Day 1 hop too.  There were so many amazing projects.
I am entering this in the Love to Crop Challenge.Happy Fall You All

For my blog candy I  will choose a winner by on Monday September 19th.  To be in the drawing I ask that you leave a comment and that you are a follower of my blog. ( I love comments and followers !)  The winner will receive a $10 gift card from their choice of Michaels or Joanns.

Thank you again for checking out my project...  So glad you made it this far.  Your next stop is  Dana at /Remember to visit all the stops for more chances to WIN!!  Have fun and Happy craftin.
