Embellish Leaves Color Challenge


Good morning!  I finally have a card to share!  It's been a long time since I played along with an Embellish Color Challenge, but I couldn't resist this one.  


These rich fall colors are so fantastic together.  I pulled out PTI's Harvest Berries to use the beautiful ginkgo leaves.  I stamped the larger images in Ripe Avocado onto a kraft card base.  Then I added some texture with the Linen & Canvas impression plate to the entire card front and selectively debossed a strip at the bottom with the Woodgrain plate.

Two strips of Enchanted Evening cardstock ground the design and a sentiment from PTI's 2009 Autumn Tags.

I die cut the small ginkgo leaves from Rustic Cream cardstock and stamped them with Ripe Avocado, then popped them up with foam tape and tucked them behind a Scarlet Jewel button.  A few randomly stamped red berries are the finishing touch.

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless noted
Cardstock:  Kraft, Enchanted Evening, Rustic Cream
Stamps:  Harvest Berries, 2009 Autumn Tags
Ink:  Ripe Avocado, Enchanted Evening, Chianti (Clearsnap)
Tools:  leaf dies, Linen & Canvas, Woodgrain impression plates
Accessories:  Scarlet Jewel button, rustic jute twine

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'm hoping to get around to your blogs this weekend to see what I've been missing.  Have a great one!
