And now on to my take on the challenge! I had a blast with this since fall IS my favorite time of year! They say that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, welllll I think fall is!
For this card, I used the Stitched Leaves dies from Lawn Fawn and partially diecut them onto some watercolor cardstock. I placed paper shims in the die cutting machine to make sure they didn't cut all the way through. I did have 2 that did, but I just glued a plain white piece of cardstock behind that diecut panel. It kept everything in place.
I used some white pearls colored in with a gold Sharpie marker to add some dimension.
The leaf background was created using Distress Inks, water and a brush. So easy and so rich looking.
I added the striping under the panel with a simple gold Sharpie!
Have fun with this challenge!!
