Autumn Silhouette Branch

Oh, how I love autumn and I hope today's card reflects that.  I have kept things "clean and simple".

I stamped the Memory Box Silhouette Branch on Very Vanilla paper in StazOn Timber Brown.  The leaves were colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  Sponging around the image was done in Distressed Antique Linen.

I cut a piece of More Mustard paper with a Spellbinders Grommet Tags die.  Autumn was inked in VersaMark then Chocolate Chip and embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  The grommet tag was layered onto a Labels Seventeen #2 die cut from Old Olive paper.  I thought the glimmer brads would be a nice touch.

Everything was assembled to a piece of Chocolate Chip then onto an Orange Fizz card.

The inside sentiment by Hero Arts was also stamped in Chocolate Chip and embossed with clear embossing powder.  The little acorns were stamped in StazOn Timber Brown onto Creamy Caramel paper, cut out and colored with a blender pen in Close to Cocoa.

Remember ... enjoy the moments that make you happy!

Autumn beauty ...
