ALSO...Flourishes BBB02 challenge wants us to capture the feel of fall. The details are HERE.
With the themes being leaves and fall, I decided to use earth tones for my card. I used clear EP to emboss the leaf images, then using a Tim Holtz foam applicator, swirled several colors over the leaves and finished off with a darker ink around the edges of the very vanilla CS. Some layering, a little linen thread and the card was finished. Oh, and to add a little more texture.. my Close to Cocoa layer is the textured card stock. I think it adds a little more interest to the card.
Well...the holiday weekend is drawing to a close, so it's time to pack up and put away all of my stamping supplies :( I'm not complaining though - I made 10 cards this weekend! YAY!
