Joan's Gardens Challenge # 8



The challenge at Joan's Gardens this week is to make  a fall theme card using pumpkins or fall leaves with either embossing or glitter.
Joan showed some beautiful samples of cards using the new range of stamps she carries from
Heartfelt Creations called Autumn Splendor.  There seemed to be lots of gold on these cards so that was my starting point.

I started with a base of Pure Luxury pw card with a layer of gold .

Two stamp sets were used for this card, both GKD. The grid was embossed in gold from AnnaBelle Stamps onto Pumpkin Spice.  The image was coloured with Copic Markers. I've used a Cuttlebug Pumpkin embossing folder for the Apple Green panel and some Toffee Sprinkles from AnnaBelle Stamps for some Autumn bling.



Thanks for calling by today and thanks too to all those friends who leave me comments, It's good to hear from you. Have a great day...........
