There is a lot that I like about this time of year - crisp days, crunchy apples and the colors of the falling leaves (but not raking the leaves!). I don't tend to choose autumn colors very often, unless I am making something that is specifically for autumn, so I challenged myself to make a "general" card with fall colors.
Just a few seconds with the heat gun turned them into this shiny gold. The cardstock I used was textured Bazzill and the embossing takes on this texture.
This is a square card measuring 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches. I added the strip of striped paper to anchor the sunflower. The paper has both flocking and glitter stripes. The photos don't really capture the sparkle of the glitter stripe - it actually balances the shiny embossing very nicely.
I put a large gradient gem brad in the center of the flower, added a medium gem sticker on top and surrounded the brad with small gem stickers in alternating shades of amber. All of these gems are from Creative Charms and you can find them HERE.
There is still plenty of time to add your link for my Creative Charms Challenge - see the post HERE to find out how you could win some great embellishments for your projects. The challenge ends next Monday.
For those of you on the email subscription, due to either Blogger (the site) or blogger (me) error my post for yesterday did not publish in the early morning as it usually does. It should have come to you sometime in the middle of the day yesterday - and with a little luck, this post is reaching you in the morning as usual.
