Autumn Leaves

Good morning. Happy Sunday.

Here we have a card for three challenges:

Critter Challenge134-sketch
Crafty Creations Challenges-189 Autiumn Leaves
The Paper Shelter Challenge-83-anything-goes

The A5 card is a beautiful pearlescent orange with a leather like finish.

The autumn leaves and the two corner squares were made from kraft paper which had been screwed up, died with Distress Inks and sprayed with glimmer mist for a bit of bling. All were cut out with Spellbinders dies.

The sentiment, from Sheena Douglass - which says, in case you can't read it, "Autumn is a second Spring, when every leaf is a flower" - was stamped on white card with Versmark and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Copper Bronze Lustre powder. It was then cut out with a Spellbinder die and shaded with Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress Inks.

The ribbon was died with various Distress Inks to match the Autumn theme and this was threaded around a large gold hammered card square and tied with a bow. Everything was layered up on the card either with glue or Pinflair Gel to dive some dimension. The tails of the bow were glued in place and hot glue orange Swarovski crystals were added in the corners as dictated by the sketch.
