My Sheri Crafts #97: Fall Colors

For this week's challenge at My Sheri Crafts we'd like for you to create a card/project using Fall colors and three embellishments -- easy-peasy!!! I chose a plaid paper from Bo Bunny's 6x6 Apple Cider collection for my BG and adhered to an orange CS base. I then decided on a straw-colored page of text from the same pad for my gem sentiment, a sweet little bargain earlier this year from Michaels outdoor clearance bin, which I recall was $.09! A sheer bow is tied around the center.
Next, I die-cut the text paper with Spellbinders' Labels Twenty-five, embossed/sanded/finished it off with a bit of Antique Linen distress inking along the edges. I embossed the same die once again on heavy-weight Bazzill brown CS, cutting around the outermost edge for a textural layer behind my straw piece. My Autumn gem sentiment was then attached, after coloring the flower petals orange (they were yellow), to bring out the orange in my plaid paper. After adding two metal leaves from my stash to the top corner, I cut an accent die from Spellbinders' Twisted Metal Tags and Accents for additional interest, embossed/distressed it and added three gems to the center, attaching it below the sentiment.
Now it's your turn to visit all our Design Team's inspiration and then create and post your own creation @ My Sheri Crafts -- can't wait to see them all!

At first glance, the "Autumn" looked like a cross-stitch and I so love cross-stitching so this card is such an attraction to me. Love the large bow!

Marge, only you can combine country and elegant in one card. I love the floppy bow too!

Fantastic card! I love that paper and I also thought your "Autumn" was needlework! Then looking closer, I thought you had added I-Rock metal discs to an outline. What a great find on that!
