Heart Song Inspiration Challenge #21

Hi Everyone!!
It's Monday, so it's Heart Song Inspiration Challenge time!!

This weeks challenge theme is... "No Sentiment and/or Harvest"!

We'd love you to play along with us! You don't have to use a Heart Song image - but of course we would love you to! You could win two images of your choice from the Heart Song Designs store!

Well No Sentiment was easy... But as I'm REALLY needing to get some Christmas cards done I decided to go with a 'Harvest' of Christmas decorations! I used Leah's lovely Heart Song Designs "Winter Basket" image... You can almost smell the beautiful fresh spruce!
I followed the Repeat Impressions Sketch O1911 as it was fairly simple and I wanted the image to stand out. I just framed the image, gave it texture with an embossed background, and distressed/aged everything with a little ink.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you can play along with us at Heart Song Inspirations this week!
