Hi there! I hope you had an amazing weekend! It's Monday so that means it's time for an all new  Simon Says Stamp Monday ChallengeThis week's challenge is to be INSPIRED by one of Tammy Tutterow's awesome tutorials! If you are not familiar with Tammy's work, you can find loads of fab inspiration on her blog

For my sample, I created a fall themed thank you tag that features an altered ornate plate that was inspired by Tammy's Tutorial: Distress Stain on Metal which frames a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Words.
Following Tammy's tutorial, which you can find HERE, I altered the Ornate Plate. What a fun and easy tutorial!
I randomly stamped various size leaves using Falling Leaves along with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink then applied various distress ink to color the tag.
Using the Tattered Leaves die, I cut a couple of leaves, applied distress ink then gave them a generous coating of Rock Candy:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you join in the fun!
