I’ve mentioned before that autumn is my favorite season and that makes this one of my favorite sets for fall!  I started by stamping the sentiment and a variety of the small images on Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock

I colored all of the images with Copic markers and cut them out.  I used Spellbinders dies Classic Ovals and Lacey Ovals to cut the sentiment and mat.  I sponged with a VersaMagic Dew Drop in Wheat with the oval die still in place.   I then traced that oval die on rust colored card stock and hand cut it so that I had an additional mat between the sentiment and the lacey oval.  I then layered all of the leaf and acorn images around the oval.

The patterned paper is Bo Bunny Apple Cider.  A perfect companion to this stamp set if I do say so myself!   I used almost the last of my linen burlap ribbon (gotta get more of that!) with a simple button from MME Breeze buttons that’s tied with a kraft jute bow.  I also added two Trinket Leaf Stick Pins, one which I colored with a E08 Copic Marker. 
Be sure to check out all of the wonderful creations our design team whipped up!  
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

What a pretty card. I love the acorns and little helicopter seed pods. (hehe, that is what we called the seed pods). I love the feel of this card with the burlap ribbon, jute, button and the cute little stick pin. Thanks for the inspiration.

What a great card! The burlap adds so much texture and makes it look very fall-ish!

I'm sure it isn't the part of the card that best demonstrates your talents, but I absolutely love what you did with that pin. It shines so beautifully gold-copper in your photo.
