Fall Colours

Good Morning all!
I've finally managed to sort out all the wobbling about on my blog &get 
all my little friends & followers faces back to the top!
I do so love seeing everyone when I go to my page, 

The card I have to share today is my second GDT card for

I have truly enjoyed being a Step Sister this month! 
Thank you all so much for inviting me!

The theme for this challenge is 
Here's my card!

I used a Kraft CS 6x6in base.
I embossed a mat of Ivory paper with the Creative Expressions
 Leaves Mask then added Vintage Photo & Tea Dye Distress Inks.
The burlap/hessian was part of a fabulous blog candy I won earlier this year.
The felt flowers are from my stash as is the leaf trim.
The sentiment stamp is from a Do Crafts See D's set.
I stamped it with clear ink then heat embossed with 
Papermania copper embossing powder
This card was inspired by the photo over at 

On the inside of the card, I added another mat of the 
embossed ivory paper. Whilst embossing,I tried to block of the middle section 
with a piece of CS to leave a plain panel to write on but
 it didn't work quite as well as I planned so I had to add
another little mat of plain cs.

I really enjoyed making this card, I hope you like it!

  24. Hello, Dawn,
    I saw your card on The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge blog and I pop up here to tell I adore it! The colours are gorgeous and I love the use of burlap and felt, as sometimes I also use them, but never used felt with paper. I also love how you stenciled the leaves. Great work!
