Paper Napkin Transfer Card for Autumn

Hi Stampers,
I am so extremely honored to have been asked to be the Guest STAR for the month of October for Dawn Olchefske and her DOStampinSTARS. I will be designing and posting a card or a project every Saturday for the month of October with the theme of  Autumn or Halloween, and I will call this My Autumn/Halloween Series .  My designs will be posting first on the STARS Facebook Page for Dawn Olchefske and her STARS every Saturday thru the month of October and I will then be posting that same card or project to my blog the next day which will be every Sunday for month of October for all my viewers.  (The STARS must get to see the card and directions first before it goes public).  Today's card is the first card that I designed for my Autumn/Halloween Card Series, and it is made from an everyday Decorative Paper Napkin...can you believe it?  No really, I'm not kidding, I made this by transferring a paper napkin to the front of the cardbase.  It is really hard to see just how beautiful this card really is from the photos below, as you really cannot see all the glitter and glimmer that was heat embossed onto the face of the card.  (I am looking for a new camera, LOL)  I put the Step-by-Step Instructions for you below so you will be able to make the card.  I am in the process of making a "Wow, That's Cool" YouTube Video on how to make a Napkin Transfer Card.  Hopefully I will finish it this week for you.  I really hope you'll enjoy My Autumn/Halloween Card Series for October and will check back all through the month of October to see the other 3 projects or cards too.  I would love to hear your comments, Until next time, God Bless!

3.    Cut a piece of Adhesive Sheet paper larger than Very Vanilla CS (approx. 3-3/4” x 7”).  On the Adhesive Sheet paper peel off the Sizzix lettered printed side (the sticky side) and put onto the Very Vanilla CS cut that was cut @ 3-1/2” x 6-3/4” 
4.     Peel off the opposite side and attach to the backside of the napkin, making sure you center the picture on the napkin the way you want it to appear. With snips trim up to the edge of the Very Vanilla CS piece so edges are clean and flush, (no adhesive paper remaining on edges).
5.    Cover complete surface of the napkin face with VersaMark Ink
