Small Harvest Basket

Hello Friends! 
Today I am showing a card I made
 with Eureka's stamp "Small Harvest Basket".
This makes a lovely fall card!

I cut a circle then stamped the image in black ink.
I then used Antique Linen Distress ink to antique the paper.
I then watercolored with Distress inks. 
I finished the image by using a fine line black pen to enhance the lines.
The brads are some off brand brad I had in my collection.
Thanks for stopping today!
Come back soon!
