Autumn Harmony

This is my post at Classy Cards 'n Such today....
we have a great challenge going on and an even greater prize
to the challenge winner...join in with us!!!!

Hello Classy Friends!!
Diane here with you today with my project for
Our new challenge this week
Which  is Trees and/or Foliage and let the photo inspire you!

I went with a much larger card then I normally do,
a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square.

My background paper is from the beautiful  6 x 6 pad KaiserCraft "On This Day".
The paper is actually tiny polka dots, but my camera would not
pick them up, no way, no how!
Let's just say next year I am springing for a new camera!

I stamped Stacy Stamps "The Woods" with Versamark twice 
and heat embossed with Sparkle 'n Sprinkle Black Fine Detail Embossing Powder.

Next I used a piece of scrap and randomly "painted" different colors of 
Twinking H2Os from the Autumn Brilliance and Think Pink sets as shown.
I used the smallest leaves from Impression Obsession Leaf Cluster to cut out the various colors.

After the leaves were cut, I glued them here and there on the trees..

 The sentiment is from the Impression Obsession Harmony In Autumn set

The card was finished with Amber Rhinestones.

I invite "you" to get inspired from our Design Team and inspiration photo
and join in the challenge with us!!
