Autumn Leaves

CAS-ual Fridays     CFC #26-Sketch
Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog     Chalenge 22-Autumn Leaves

We're starting to get a few nippy temps in N. TX so the leaves are just barely starting to change. I've had this ribbon and these staples in my stash for quite a long time, but I have to say the stars of this card are the 3 embossing powders I used. Copper for the large leaf, Aged Mahogany distress powder, and Tea Dye distress powder for the small leaf. Voila, you have a casually elegant card.

Supplies: 4" X 5 1/2" ivory card blank, Papers: Stampin Up-Naturals card stock, Always Artichoke, Stamps: Close To My Heart-D1181 Autumn Splendor, Ink: VersaMark Ink, Stampin Up marker-Always Aritichoke, Judi-Kins Copper embossing powder, Ranger Tim Holtz distressing powder-aged mahogany, tea dye, American Traditional-ribbon, EK Success-copper decorative staples, glue dots.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
Beverly G ♥

Love the look of this card - casually elegant, perfect way to put it. The embossing powder adds that little touch of something that makes it just marvelous!

Lovely eye candy to enjoy!
