Mabelle RO: Blessed Harvest

Happy Monday!

This is a great Fall image of Mabelle's called Blessed Harvest.  It is one of my favorites that came out last year.  The papers are Simple Stories "Harvest Lane" a favorite Fall release this year.
This is a layered image.  I printed out the image twice, colored the background on the base image, then colored, cut out and layered the second image on the base.

The layout is based on the following sketch, a challenge at Raise the Bar.  I turned it on its side and moved the heart (or bow) element to the other side.
